I finished reading about Arendt's life with profound respect and admiration

I finished reading about Arendt's life with profound respect and admiration. Young-Bruehl has published the definitive biography and it's length reflects the enormous energy and spirit that Arendt had in writing and teaching, in thinking and acting. When asked by Hans Morganthau if she was conservative or liberal, she replied that she was neither-didn't want to sit on a stool, "I am a radical.

In this concise book, Elisabeth Young-Bruehl introduces her .

In this concise book, Elisabeth Young-Bruehl introduces her mentor’s work to readers. Elisabeth Young-Bruehl, who was Arendt’s doctoral student in the early 1970s and who wrote the definitive biography of her mentor in 1982, now revisits Arendt’s major works and seminal ideas. Young-Bruehl considers what Arendt’s analysis of the totalitarianism of Nazi Germany and the Stalinist Soviet Union can teach us about our own times, and how her revolutionary understanding of political action is connected to forgiveness and making promises for the future.

Elisabeth Young-Bruehl professes to find a unifying impulse in the Life whereas I was struck by its incoherence. lt; p class initial Young-Bruehl’s charge that I have demeaned Hannah Arendt by reducing her to a study in the history of ideas is wrong on both counts

Elisabeth Young-Bruehl professes to find a unifying impulse in the Life whereas I was struck by its incoherence. Every turn in Arendt’s complex argument, she writes, is a turn away from unfreedom. But as Young-Bruehl proceeds to recite the numerous turns, she has substantiated my main point: that the work is basically empty. lt; p class initial Young-Bruehl’s charge that I have demeaned Hannah Arendt by reducing her to a study in the history of ideas is wrong on both counts. I praised her for having creatively reworked certain ideas and I referred to her original and striking use of Nietzsche.

Young-Bruehl is very clear, for example, on how Arendt's concept of evil changed from The Origins of Totalitarianism to her book Eichmann in Jerusalem

Young-Bruehl is very clear, for example, on how Arendt's concept of evil changed from The Origins of Totalitarianism to her book Eichmann in Jerusalem. I also learned much from Young-Bruehl's discussion on Arendt's hope for the council system as a means to effect radical and democratic change that is not controlled from above. Apparently Arendt saw some continuity between what happened in the early stages of the American Revolution and what happened in the 1848, the Sparticist Rebellion and the Hungarian revolt in 1956.

Elisabeth Young-Bruehl. Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read. Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new books that are right for them. 1. Perry Rhodan 85: Allianz der Galaktiker.
