Abstract:

"At the heart of this book is a profound ethical investigation. "Some Questions of Moral Philosophy": in it Arendt confronts the inadequacy of traditional 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. We see how Arendt comes to understand that alongside the radical evil she had addressed in earlier analyses of totalitarianism, there exists a more pernicious evil, independent of political ideology, whose execution is limitless when the perpetrator feels no remorse and can forget his acts as soon as they are committed." "Responsibility and Judgment is an essential work for understanding Arendt's conception of morality: it is also an indispensable investigation into some of the most troubling and important issues of our time."--Jacket.
