Fortune is a woman : gender and politics in the thought of Niccolò Machiavelli by Hanna Fenichel Pitkin( Book )

32 editions published between 1984 and 1999 in English and held by 1,022 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hanna Pitkin's study of Machiavelli was the first to place gender systematically at the center of its exploration of his political thought. Rife with contradictions, Machiavelli's writings have led commentators to characterize him as everything from a civic republican to a proto-fascist. Acknowledging these contradictions, Pitkin shows that they reflect three distinct ways of thinking about politics, each of which is tied to a different understanding of "manhood." In a new Afterword, Pitkin discusses the book's critical reception and situates its arguments in the context of recent interpretations of Machiavelli's thought."--Jacket
The attack of the blob : Hannah Arendt's concept of the social by Hanna Fenichel Pitkin( Book )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most brilliant political theorists of the twentieth century, Hannah Arendt intended her work to liberate and empower, to restore our capacity for concerted political action, to convince us that the power to improve our flawed arrangements is in our hands. At the same time, Arendt developed a metaphor of "the social" as an alien, all-consuming monster appearing as if from outer space to gobble up human freedom; she blamed it - not us - for our public paralysis and depoliticization. How can we understand her vision of the social that seems to conflict with her most important teaching? The Attack of the Blob is an imaginative and elegantly written study in which Hanna Pitkin seeks to resolve this paradox by tracing Arendt's notion of "the social" from her earliest writings to The Human Condition and beyond. Interpreting each work in its historical and personal context, Pitkin develops an answer that considers language and rhetoric, psychology and gender, authority, abstraction, and even the nature of political theory itself

Hanna Fenichel Pitkin : politics, judgment, action by Hanna Fenichel Pitkin( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hanna Fenichel Pitkin's political theorizing confronts the sense of powerlessness and alienation that marks the modern condition. It does so by embracing plurality, ambiguity, and contradiction, and by remaining attuned to embodiment, needs, and differences -aspects of the human condition that political theorists have, she argues, too often sought to escape or deny. The insights generated by Pitkin's theorizing not only point to the challenges we face in marshalling our deliberative and shared powers, but also makes accessible to us conceptual and practical tools we can use to address our troubling times. The editor has focused on work in three key areas: Politics: Pitkin's work on the problems of autonomy, moral action, consent, and obligation examines in nuanced ways how persons relate to political collectivities. She explores our tendency to imagine autonomy in ways that deny our interconnectedness and instead project dominance over others, and she limns alternatives to these immature and masculinist conceptions of agency. Drawing out these themes in her readings of literature and classics of political theory, Pitkin illuminates problems of political agency in late modern life. Judgement: Pitkin's path-breaking work with language philosophy is most prominently displayed in her work on justice. In selections from this work and others, Pitkin brings together questions of responsibility, the insights of moral philosophy, and even pedagogical practice. Blending ordinary language philosophy and textual study, she offers a complex and subtle set of observations about justice and judgement which open to questions of action and responsibility in the exercise of political freedom. Action: Pitkin's political thinking draws out images of political action that best heed the ambiguities and complexities of co-action with strangers. Pitkin's work in these selections reflects upon the ways that people co-create complex, large-scale problems by way of their participation in social norms, their attribution of agency to "the market", the problem of false necessity, and so on. She diagnoses these problems as a reflection of our alienation from our own shared and collective powers, and offers suggestions for their redirection
