Related: Germany - philosophy - Martin Heidegger


Hannah Arendt (October 14, 1906 – December 4, 1975) was a German political theorist.

Arendt was born of secular Jewish parents in the then independent city Linden (now a part of Hanover) and raised in Königsberg (the hometown of her admired precursor Immanuel Kant) and Berlin. She studied philosophy with Martin Heidegger at the University of Marburg, and had a long, sporadic romantic relationship with him, something that has been criticised because of his Nazi sympathies. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hannah_Arendt [Jan 2006]

She also wrote The Origins of Totalitarianism, which attempted to trace the roots of communism and fascism and their link to anti-semitism. This book was controversial because it compared two subjects that many scholars believed were, by definition, opposites. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hannah_Arendt [Nov 2004]
