The Cambridge Companion to Hannah Arendt
Dana Villa, Cambridge University Press
Cambridge University Press, Nov 30, 2000 - Philosophy - 304 pages
Hannah Arendt was one of the foremost political thinkers of the twentieth century, and her particular interests have made her one of the most frequently cited thinkers of our time. This volume examines the primary themes of her multi-faceted work, from her theory of totalitarianism and her controversial idea of the 'banality of evil' to her classic studies of political action and her final reflections on judgment and the life of the mind. Each essay examines the political, philosophical, and historical concerns which shaped Arendt's thought.
