Responsibility and judgment by Hannah Arendt( Book )

48 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,371 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 )

14 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Italian and held by 763 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 )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After the publication of The Origins of Totalitarianism in 1951, Hannah Arendt undertook an investigation of Marxism, a subject that she had deliberately left out of her earlier work. Her inquiry into Marx's philosophy led her to a critical examination of the entire tradition of Western political thought, from its origins in Plato and Aristotle to its culmination and conclusion in Marx. The Promise of Politics tells how Arendt came to understand the failure of that tradition to account for human action."
Essays in understanding, 1930-1954 : formation, exile, and totalitarianism by Hannah Arendt( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few thinkers have addressed the political horrors and ethical complexities of the twentieth century with the insight and passionate intellectual integrity of Hannah Arendt. She was irresistibly drawn to the activity of understanding, in an effort to endow historical, political, and cultural events with meaning. Essays in Understanding assembles many of Arendt's writings from the 1930s, 1940s, and into the 1950s. Included here are illuminating discussions of St. Augustine, existentialism, Kafka, and Kierkegaard; relatively early examinations of Nazism, responsibility and guilt, and the place of religion in the modern world; and later investigations into the nature of totalitarianism that Arendt set down after The Origins of Totalitarianism was published in 1951. The body of work gathered in this volume gives us a portrait of Arendt's development as a thinker - and confirms why her ideas and judgments remain as seminal today as they were when she first set them down."--Jacket
