Responsibility and judgment by Hannah Arendt ( Book )
17 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,063 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."--BOOK JACKET
Essays in understanding, 1930-1954 by Hannah Arendt ( Book )
12 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 753 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 )
14 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For Arendt, politics has no "end"; instead, it has at times been - and perhaps can be again - the never-ending endeavor of the great plurality of human beings to live together and share the earth in mutually guaranteed freedom. That is the promise of politics."--BOOK JACKET
The Jewish writings by Hannah Arendt ( Book )
13 editions published in 2007 in English and Dutch and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although Hannah Arendt is not primarily known as a Jewish thinker, she probably wrote more about Jewish issues than any other topic. When she was in her mid-twenties and still living in Germany, Arendt wrote about the history of German Jews as a people living in a land that was not their own. In 1933, at the age of twenty-six, she fled to France, where she helped to arrange for German and eastern European Jewish youth to quit Europe and become pioneers in Palestine. During her years in Paris, Arendt's principal concern was with the transformation of antisemitism from a social prejudice to a political policy, which would culminate in the Nazi "final solution" to the Jewish question'the physical destruction of European Jewry. After France fell at the beginning of World War II, Arendt escaped from an internment camp in Gurs and made her way to the United States. Almost immediately upon her arrival in New York she wrote one article after another calling for a Jewish army to fight the Nazis, and for a new approach to Jewish political thinking. After the war, her attention was focused on the creation of a Jewish homeland in a binational (Arab-Jewish) state of Israel. Although Arendt's thoughts eventually turned more to the meaning of human freedom and its inseparability from political life, her original conception of political freedom cannot be fully grasped apart from her experience as a Jew. In 1961 she attended Adolf Eichmann's trial in Jerusalem. Her report on that trial, Eichmann in Jerusalem, provoked an immense controversy, which culminated in her virtual excommunication from the worldwide Jewish community. Today that controversy is the subject of serious re-evaluation, especially among younger people in America, Europe, and Israel. The publication of The Jewish Writings'much of which has never appeared before'traces Arendt's life and thought as a Jew. It will put an end to any doubts about the centrality, from beginning to end, of Arendt's Jewish experience. From the Hardcover edition
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 169 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."--BOOK JACKET
Responsabilité et jugement by Hannah Arendt ( Book )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in French and held by 124 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
