featuring Gabriel Trop, Associate Professor of German
One of the most original and fruitful minds of the Twentieth Century
—In Between Past and Future Arendt describes the perplexing crises modern society faces as a result of the loss of meaning of the traditional key words of politics: justice, reason, responsibility, virtue, and glory.—Penguin Classics
—It is hard to name another thinker of the twentieth century more sought after as a guide to the dilemmas of the twenty-first.—The New Yorker
—Arendt has an extraordinary talent for giving fresh meanings to everyday experiences and for revealing the staleness and faculty of much that passes for novelty and innovation.—Foreign Affairs
—Perhaps Arendt’s most profound legacy is in establishing that one has to consider oneself political as part of the human condition.—The Guardian
—A book to think with through the political impasses and cultural confusions of our day.—Harper’s Magazine
