Unlearning with Hannah Arendt PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Unlearning with Hannah Arendt free pdf After observing the trial of Adolf Eichmann, Hannah Arendt articulated her controversial concept of the banality of evil, thereby posing one of the most chilling and divisive moral question of the twentieth century: How can genocidal acts be carried out by non-psychopathic people? While her theories have continued to draw innumerable opponents, Arendt's work remains an invaluable resource for those seeking greater insight into the more problematic aspects of human nature.
