The Liberating Power of Education

I’m very proud to have contributed to the Academy of Ideas’ Letters on Liberty series of pamphlets, which has been doing a great job of showing what the much-devalued idea of ‘freedom’ can mean to us today.

My Letter is a mini-history of education, which explores the tension between the recognition that knowledge is important and the fear of where it might lead, a tension which has been with us since ancient times right up to the modern day. 

£2+p&p – a great stocking filler! Order your copies from the Academy of Ideas.

Or purchase the latest bundle of three Letters for a fiver, the other two being ‘The Seductive Power of Literature’ by Phil Harrison and ‘Toxic Sociality: Reflections on a Pandemic’ by Josie Appleton.
