The merits and faults of Fascism, National Socialism and Communism cannot be properly appreciated without an understanding of their theoretical and historical foundations, Dr. Heinrich Jordan, exiled German professor, told his class in “Recent Developments in the Philosophy of the State,” at the first session of New York University, Washington Square summer session yesterday.

“Consciously or subconsciously, the elements of political philosophy, as evolved through the great systems of political thought in the last century, are contained also in present day ideologies, whether their originators admit it or not,” said Professor Jordan.
