Summary/Abstract: The text deals with the historical context of the emergence of totalitarianism and at the same time shows the meaning of today's "soft totalitarianism" that, in relation to that historical, becomes abstract and depersonalized. Modern totalitarianism arises in the form of a neoliberal concept of a society that sees the only value in a market as a profit value. Neoliberal universities, as well as the Bologna concept of the university, are the expression of this enmity tendency towards any education and culture that does not bring profit, that is, towards any science based on free and critical thought. For the first time in history, this form of totalitarianism, has succeeded in presenting the modern humanistic character of culture and education in the meaning of its hostility towards modern man and society.
