Roberto Mangabeira Unger took leave from his teaching position at Harvard Law School to become Brazil's Minister of Strategic Affairs for a few years during the term of President Lula. I never liked his views on nature or his strongly developmental bias toward Amazonia but he is obviously brilliant and offers a fascinating understanding of what makes Brazil so confusing and inspiring, especially when compared with the USA. Lula liked to call Unger his "minister of the future."
