Why Arendt matters by Elisabeth Young-Bruehl( Book )

23 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1951, publication of The Origins of Totalitarianism brought Hannah Arendt immediate recognition as a political thinker of the first order, and over the next quarter-century, she published numerous books that profoundly influenced the way America and Europe addressed the central questions and dilemmas of World War II. Yet for many, the significance of Arendt's work has been lost in the controversy surrounding a single phrase, "the banality of evil," that was used in her study Eichmann in Jerusalem. Here, Elisabeth Young-Bruehl illuminates Arendt's most influential work and places it in the context of crucial twenty-first-century issues such as war, terrorism, security, privacy, and what Kant called "radical evil.""--Jacket

Subject to biography : psychoanalysis, feminism, and writing women's lives by Elisabeth Young-Bruehl( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elisabeth Young-Bruehl illuminates the psychological and intellectual demands writing biography makes on the biographer and explores the complex and frequently conflicted relationship between feminism and psychoanalysis. She considers what remains valuable in Sigmund Freud's work, and what areas - theory of character, for instance - must be rethought to be useful for current psychoanalytic work, for feminist studies, and for social theory. Psychoanalytic theory used for biography, she argues, can yield insights for psychoanalysis itself, particularly in the understanding of creativity
