This course will discuss the life and works of Hannah Arendt, a young German/Jewish philosopher who escaped the holocaust and came to the US. She became one of the most prominent political philosophers in the world and left a legacy of important works, including The Origins of TotalitarianismThe Human Condition and Eichmann in Jerusalem. A fractured world needs her insights today. This will not be a lecture but a discussion course utilizing a few chapters each week of the book Hannah Arendt by Samantha Rose Hill, part of the Critical Lives series.
