The inculcation of patriotism is often construed as a curb on the development of critical reason, and hence, as repugnant to any conception of political education that valorizes autonomy. This view of patriotic education, recently defended by William Galston, is shown to rest on illiberal premises about the role of emotions in public life. A form of liberal patriotic education, derived from Rawls's account of moral development, that escapes the pitfalls of Galston's account is delineated.

Keywords:   autonomy, critical reason, emotion, William Galston, moral development, patriotic education, patriotism, political education, public life, John Rawls
