Hannah Arendt’s The Origins of Totalitarianism demonstrates that one of the key strategies of fascism is its stealth, such that no one can ever fully demonstrate or prove that there are fascisms at work. To what extent is such stealth present in educational philosophy? It is perhaps timely for educational philosophy to examine itself in the light of Arendt’s concerns, and to ask itself if it has both the resources necessary to expose any such fascisms, and the values necessary to challenge them.

Nigel Tubbs is Professor of Education in the Department of Education Studies and Liberal Arts at the University of Winchester, UK. His latest publication is God, Education, and Modern Metaphysics: the logic of know thyself (Routledge). He is working on new titles on education and vocation, and on rethinking Plato’s Republic.
