Hannah Arendt Center for Politics and Humanities

From the Archives


We want to share an audio treasure from our archives with you:

In December of 1968, Hannah Arendt delivered a lecture at Bard College.  Following a climate of student unrest and  protest in the spring of 1968, Arendt spoke on "Power and Violence."

Listen to the "Power and Violence" Lecture audio and subsequent Question and Answer session here.

[Audio was digitized in 2006 from reel to reel analog tape archives.]

Arendt published "Reflections on Violence" in the February 27, 1969 issue of The New York Review of Books)  This was later included in her book On Violence, published by Harcourt Brace in 1970.
