Abstract:

Arendt confronts the inadequancy of triditional 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. Arendt comes to understand that alongside the radical evil she had addressed in earlier analyses of totalitarianism, there exist a more prenicious evil, independent of political ideology, whose execution is limitless when the prepetrator feels no remorse and can forget his acts as soon as they are committed.
