The human condition by Hannah Arendt( Book )
178 editions published between 1958 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 3,956 libraries worldwide
A work of striking originality bursting with unexpected insights, The Human condition is in many respects more relevant now than when it first appeared in 1958. In her study of the state of modern humanity, Hannah Arendt considers humankind from the perspective of the actions of which it is capable. The problems Arendt identified then--diminishing human agency and political freedom, the paradox that as human powers increase through technological and humanistic inquiry, we are less equipped to control the consequences of our actions--continue to confront us today. This new edition, published to coincide with the fortieth anniversary of its original publication, contains an improved and expanded index and a new introduction by noted Arendt scholar Margaret Canovan which incisively analyzes the book's argument and examines its present relevance. A classic in political and social theory, The Human condition is a work that has proved both timeless and perpetually timely

On revolution by Hannah Arendt( Book )
128 editions published between 1962 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 3,492 libraries 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

55 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 2,291 libraries worldwide
This book contains studies on contemporary art and culture by one of the most original, critical and analytical minds of this century. Illuminations includes Benjamin's views on Kafka, with whom he felt the closest personal affinity, his studies on Baudelaire and Proust (both of whom he translated), his essays on Leskov and on Brecht's Epic Theater. Also included are his penetrating study on "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction," an illuminating discussion of translation as a literary mode, and his thesis on the philosophy of history. Hannah Arendt selected the essays for this volume and prefaces them with a substantial, admirably informed introduction that presents Benjamin's personality and intellectual development, as well as his work and his life in dark times. - Publisher

80 editions published between 1969 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 2,262 libraries worldwide

Men in dark times by Hannah Arendt( Book )
46 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,799 libraries worldwide
"Dark times" is Brecht's phrase, and Hannah Arendt uses it not to suggest that those she writes about are "mouthpieces of the Zeitgeist" (none in fact fit such roles), but, rather, that the routine repetitive horrors of our century form the substance of the dark against which their lives of illumination were lived. All the essays, written over a period of years, are concerned with persons--writers who (except Lessing) share the first half of the twentieth century--and only implicitly with issues. Dr. Arendt believes that "Even in the darkest of times we have the right to expect some illumination, and that such illumination may come less from theories and concepts than from the uncertain, flickering, and often weak light that some men and women, in their lives and works, will kindle under almost all circumstances and shed over the time-span that was given them on earth."--Publisher description

Crises of the Republic : Lying in politics ; Civil disobedience ; On violence ; Thoughts on politics and revolution by Hannah Arendt( Book )
53 editions published between 1970 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,576 libraries worldwide
In this stimulating collection of studies, Dr. Arendt, from the standpoint of a political philosopher, views the crises of the 1960s and early '70s as challenges to the American form of government. The book begins with "Lying in Politics," a penetrating analysis of the Pentagon Papers that deals with the role of image-making and public relations in politics. "Civil Disobedience" examines the various opposition movements from the Freedom Riders to the war resisters and the segregationists. "Thoughts on Politics and Revolution," cast in the form of an interview, contains a commentary to the author's theses in "On Violence." Through the connected essays, Dr. Arendt examines, defines, and clarifies the concerns of the American citizen of the time.--From publisher description
Responsibility and judgment by Hannah Arendt( Book )
27 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,157 libraries worldwide
"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

Essays in understanding, 1930-1954 by Hannah Arendt( Book )
29 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 920 libraries worldwide
Few thinkers have tackled the political horrors and complexities of this century with the insight and passionate intellectual integrity of Hannah Arendt. A philosophic champion of human freedom, she was among the first to draw the now-evident parallel between Nazism and Bolshevism and to identify totalitarianism as a threat inherent to the modern world. Jerome Kohn, Arendt's longtime assistant, has compiled, edited, and annotated her manuscripts for publication, beginning with some of her earliest published work and including essays on Augustine, Rilke, Kierkegaard, and figures of the nineteenth-century "Berlin Salon"; the loyalties of immigrant groups within the United States; the unification or "federation" of Europe; "the German problem"; religion, politics, and intellectual life; the dangers of isolation and careerism in American society; the logical consequences of "scientific" theories of Nature and History; the terror that was the organizing principle of both the Nazi and the Communist states. Two seminal essays have never before been published in complete form: "On the Nature of Totalitarianism: An Essay in Understanding" (1953) and "Concern with Politics in Recent European Philosophical Thought" (1954)
Hannah Arendt, the recovery of the public world by Hannah Arendt( Book )
2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 866 libraries worldwide
Love and Saint Augustine by Hannah Arendt( Book )
10 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 859 libraries worldwide
"Hannah Arendt began her scholarly career with an exploration of Saint Augustine's concept of caritas, or neighborly love, written under the direction of Karl Jaspers and the influence of Martin Heidegger. After her German academic life came to a halt in 1933, Arendt carried her dissertation into exile in France, and years later took the same battered and stained copy to New York. During the late 1950s and early 1960s, as she was completing or reworking her most influential studies of political life, Arendt was simultaneously annotating and revising her dissertation on Augustine, amplifying its argument with terms and concepts she was using in her political works of the same period. The dissertation became a bridge over which Arendt traveled back and forth between 1929 Heidelberg and 1960s New York, carrying with her Augustine's question about the possibility of social life in an age of rapid political and moral change."--Jacket
