Hannah Arendt – Between Past and Future

This book – initially published in 1961 by The Viking Press in the United States and by Faber and Faber Ltd in Great Britain – is consisted by a collection of eight exercises in political thought and offers a key account of western politics. Arendt analyzes the philosophical roots of occidental political traditions with deep understanding of the Greek and Roman traditions, which have been largely abandoned.

Arendt attempts to propose solutions for humans to re-think about their role in the world by reviving what has been lost through centuries, given that modern philosophy has not succeeded in helping humans to live correctly. Arendt’s clarity of thought should be read, admired, and emulated.
