Editorial Reviews


'The conclusions that d'Entreves draws from Hannah Arendt's work for the implementation of more extended and participatory forms of democracy and citizenship demonstrate the acute contemporary relevance of Arendt's writings for our political thinking after the collapse of totalitarianism. D'Entreves' writing is dinstinguished by compelling and clearly articulated argument, and his exposition and assessment of Arendt is of a consistently high quality. This is a sophisticated entrance point to Arendt's political thought.' - Simon Critchley, University of Essex

`This is an incisive, penetrating and clear presentation of some of the major philosophical and political tensions in Hannah Arendt's work ... it is well written and well argued and will be immensely useful to newcomers as well as more advanced readers of Hannah Arendt's work.' - Seyla Benhabib, Harvard University

`... admirably clear and a useful map for students ...' - Women's Philosophy Review

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Pen Name? VINE VOICE on April 20, 2002
Format: Hardcover
(First of all, there is a paperback printing of this, as I have it.)
This is a very readable, very well organized overview and assessment of Hannah Arendt's political philosophy. The book is broken into 5 major sections: 1) Introduction 2)Arendt's conception of modernity 3)Arendt's theory of Action 4) Arendt's theory of judgement & 5) Arendt's conception of citizenship.
Now, anyone familiar with Arendt's work is probably already well aquainted with these themes, yet this book manages to bring more life to these major concepts and takes some of the most illuminating quotes from Arendt's works, so that the reader needn't take the author's word on what Arendt meant.
This book is not merely an introduction to Arendt (though it is fine as that, too) it is a sharp critique of her ideas, but is aware that even when her words seem inadequate, the spirit of Arendt's political philosophy is still strong; and d'Entreves does quite well emphasizing this intangible aspect of Arendt's philosophy. He addresses the criticisms and responses of many philosophers and critics and draws Arendt into a dialogue with these writers, helping to continue the project of Arendtian philosophy.
