A comprehensive collection of writings by one of the twentieth-century's most important philosophers and political thinkers. Amid the confusion of the twentieth century, Hannah Arendt was perhaps our most searching and sane thinker. Born into a Jewish family in Germany at the beginning of the century, Arendt studied under Martin Heidegger and Karl Jaspers. She later fled the Nazi terror and established herself as a preeminent political and philosophical writer at New York's famed New School for Social Research.The Portable Hannah Arendt, the first comprehensive volume of her writings, includes generous selections from her masterworks: The Origins of Totalitarianism, The Human Condition, and her controversial Eichmann in Jerusalem. Also featured is a selection of Arendt's letters to other formative thinkers of the century, including Jaspers and Mary McCarthy. This Viking Portable volume powerfully displays the ideas of this formidable post-modern intellectual.
