Title Safeguarding a Common World : Arendt on the State and Education
Author Lilja, Peter
Date 2017
English abstract
When approaching the question of the role of the state in education from the perspective of Arendtian thought, two problems present themselves. First, Arendt never formulated any comprehensive theory of the state of her own, even if she devoted a lot of attention to the shortcomings of the nation-state order that emerged in Europe between the two world wars. Second, some of the most distinctive ideas of her writings on education centers on the need for education to be conservative, non-political in character and kept apart from the world of politics. This may seem controversial in relation to contemporary debates on education. Recent attempts, however, to construct an Arendtian theory of the state provide some additional arguments for her insistence on the importance of keeping education non-political and sheltered from the world of politics.
