On Hannah Arendt.....

arendt.jpg"Hannah Arendt is a symbol and embodiment of humanistic thought grounded in thorough understanding. No other American thinker so engages (and, yes, sometimes enrages) citizens and students from all political persuasions, resisting all attempts at categorization on the right or the left, and all the while insisting on human dignity. Arendt's writings attract the minds and hearts of individuals who wish to think for themselves. She is that rare writer who compels her readers to think and re-think their most fundamental ethical and political convictions. She understands the dangers of thoughtlessness, loneliness and how they can lead to ideological conformism and unthinking evil." She speaks to our time. See this acclaimed film starring Barbara Sukawa, directed by Margareth Von Trotta and participate in the discussion and Q & A.
