Abstract:

Hannah Arendt is regarded as one of the most important political philosophers of the twentieth century. Famous for her account of the banality of evil, her wide-ranging work explored such themes as totalitarianism, human rights, democratic movements, and the challenges of modern technological society. Recent years have seen a growing appreciation of her complex relationship to theological sources. This book explores how Arendt's critical and constructive engagements with theology inform her broader thought, as well as the lively debates her work is stirring in Christian theology on such topics as evil, love, political action, and the life of the mind. -- from back cover.
