  1. I just discovered Hannah and am enthralled with her ideas. I am reading “The Human Condition” , purchased “The Origins of Totalitarianis” and “The Life of the Mind”. Her thoughts are like tenticals of an octapus reaching out here and their dragging everything relavant into lines of letters marked upon paper to be passed from one generation to another.
    I have been two days on chapter one and several more days will pass as I go over and over the words trying to make them make sense while understanding whithout having to understand.

  2. Je suis Benoît BIRWE, étudiant africain -en particulier camerounais- en cycle de recherche. Mes recherches portent sur “Education et modernité chez Hannah Arendt”. La pensée de l’auteur me fascine, mais je manque cruellement de documantation pour mener à bien cette recherche pouvant déboucher sur un Ph.D. Que pourrait faire Hannah Arendt Center pour moi?

    Merci de votre prompte réaction.

    Ciao,
    Tschüs,

    Bye Bye
