Born On This Day: Hannah Arendt

The indomitable, brilliant, perspicacious and refreshingly honest Hannah Arendt. (14 October 1906 – 1975)

The time will come when the world will credit her as the leading political analyst and philosopher of the 20th century.

Instead of presenting her marvelously perceptive quotes, or a short introduction to how she influenced me, I will share an essay by Siobhan Kattago (2018). I don’t do it because of the upcoming US elections, or because of the worldwide measures regarding covid 19. Staying involved politically and socially is a lot more than voting in a theatrical and contentious 2-party system and a lot more than just reacting to bad news.
