Hannah Arendt by Margarethe von Trotta( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Das noch nie zuvor im deutschen Fernsehen gesendete Interview mit der Philosophin Hanna Arendt führte der französische Journalist Roger Errera 1973 in New York. Errera sprach mit der mittlerweile amerikanischen Staatsbürgerin über ihr Paria-Dasein als Jüdin in Deutschland und den Brückenschlag zwischen Europa und den USA. Das ambivalente Amerika-Bild, das die Philosophin in dem Gespräch zeichnet, ihre Kommentare zu gesellschaftlichem und politischem Engagement und zur Demokratie sowie ihr kritischer Blick auf die zunehmend apolitische Konsumgesellschaft der westlichen Welt haben auch heute - mehr als 30 Jahre später - noch nichts von ihrer Gültigkeit eingebüßt. Im Gegenteil: angesichts der politischen und gesellschaftlichen Entwicklung erscheinen Hannah Arendts Analysen und Prognosen fast prophetisch." []
On revolution by Hannah Arendt( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Revolution is among the most recent of all major political phenomena. To analyze and interpret its meaning Dr. Arendt turns back to the first great examples: the American and the French. How was it possible for the first to accomplish its objectives under the control and guidance of the men who started it, while the second foundered in impotence and terror so that the onlookers came to believe that revolution must of necessity devour its own children? How could a Robespierre substitute an irresistible and anonymous stream of violence for the free and deliberate actions of men? What basic difference between the two made the French Revolution, with its emphasis on historical necessity, the apparently inescapable model for later revolutions in Russia and China--and them in turn models for later uprisings? What has happened to the ideal of freedom as the end and justification of revolution? What has happened to foundation--the novus ordo saeclorum? With her characteristic originality and brilliance of analysis, Dr. Arendt traces back to their beginnings the principles that underlie these great events, principles that contain the answers to these questions and throw light upon the present and the future. Finally, she advances a daring proposal for restoring the revolutionary virtues and eliminating the evils of mass society--a means of reconciling equality with authority and of restoring public happiness and public freedom to the people.--From book jacket
The portable Hannah Arendt by Hannah Arendt( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"She was a Jew born in Germany in the early twentieth century, and she studied with the greatest German minds of her day - Martin Heidegger and Karl Jaspers among them. After the rise of the Nazis, she emigrated to America, where she proceeded to write some of the most searching, hard-hitting reflections on the agonizing issues of the day - totalitarianism in both Nazi and Stalinist garb; Zionism and the legacy of the Holocaust; federally mandated school desegregation and civil rights in the United States; and the nature of evil." "The Portable Hannah Arendt offers substantial excerpts from the three works that ensured her international and enduring stature: The Origins of Totalitarianism, The Human Condition, and Eichmann in Jerusalem. Additionally, this volume includes several other provocative essays, as well as her correspondence with other influential figures of the time. These thoughtfully chosen pieces form an eloquent testament to a fearless thinker who argued for justice and hope in the middle of an anguished century."--Jacket
