Responsibility and judgment by Hannah Arendt( Book )

27 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the heart of this book is a profound ethical investigation. "Some Questions of Moral Philosophy": in it Arendt confronts the inadequacy of traditional moral "truths" as standards to judge what we are capable of doing, and she examines anew our ability to distinguish good from evil and right from wrong. We see how Arendt comes to understand that alongside the radical evil she had addressed in earlier analyses of totalitarianism, there exists a more pernicious evil, independent of political ideology, whose execution is limitless when the perpetrator feels no remorse and can forget his acts as soon as they are committed." "Responsibility and Judgment is an essential work for understanding Arendt's conception of morality: it is also an indispensable investigation into some of the most troubling and important issues of our time."--Jacket
Essays in understanding, 1930-1954 by Hannah Arendt( Book )

35 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 934 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few thinkers have tackled the political horrors and complexities of this century with the insight and passionate intellectual integrity of Hannah Arendt. A philosophic champion of human freedom, she was among the first to draw the now-evident parallel between Nazism and Bolshevism and to identify totalitarianism as a threat inherent to the modern world. Jerome Kohn, Arendt's longtime assistant, has compiled, edited, and annotated her manuscripts for publication, beginning with some of her earliest published work and including essays on Augustine, Rilke, Kierkegaard, and figures of the nineteenth-century "Berlin Salon"; the loyalties of immigrant groups within the United States; the unification or "federation" of Europe; "the German problem"; religion, politics, and intellectual life; the dangers of isolation and careerism in American society; the logical consequences of "scientific" theories of Nature and History; the terror that was the organizing principle of both the Nazi and the Communist states. Two seminal essays have never before been published in complete form: "On the Nature of Totalitarianism: An Essay in Understanding" (1953) and "Concern with Politics in Recent European Philosophical Thought" (1954)

The promise of politics by Hannah Arendt( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and Japanese and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The final and longer section of The Promise of Politics, titled "Introduction into Polities," was written in German and is published here for the first time in English. This remarkable meditation on the modern prejudice against politics asks whether politics has any meaning at all anymore. Although written in the latter half of the 1950s, what Arendt says about the relation of politics to human freedom could hardly have greater relevance for our own time. When politics is considered as a means to an end that lies outside of itself, when force is used to "create" freedom, political principles vanish from the face of the earth
Responsabilité et jugement by Hannah Arendt( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in French and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce livre fait suite à "La philosophie de l'existence et autres essais". H. Arendt montre qu'il existe un mal plus pernicieux que le totalitarisme : indépendant de toute idéologie politique, il se révèle sans limite quand celui qui le perpétue n'éprouve aucun remords et oublie ses actes à mesure qu'il les commet. Les textes ici rassemblés permettent de mieux connaître sa conception de la morale
