Ideology was presented as a science and set in opposition to prejudice and false beliefs because scientific progress was possible only if these could be avoided. From the start, however, ideology was to have pejorative connotations, one reason being that de Tracy and those who practised it, the ideologues or ‘idéologistes’, were concerned with two logically incompatible concepts of ‘ideology’: the relation between history and thought and the promotion of ‘true’ ideas which would be true regardless of the historical context.

School is a place to train character. It is what came to distinguish the English public school from all other Western approaches to education or educational institutions. It is what ‘impresses and amazes foreigners’ (Gathorne-Hardy 1977: 75). In France, Germany and even Scotland schools not only drew from the wider social spectrum, but were academic institutions only; character was left to the family (Vaizey 1977). Examples of the public school ethos can be found in Tom Brown’s School Days.
