Hannah Arendt (1906-1975) was one of the most important political philosophers of our century. Now, twenty years after her death, this collection of fifteen essays brings her work into dialogue with those philosophical views that are at center stage today--in critical theory, communitarianism, virtue theory, and feminism. An extensive bibliography of work on Arendt in English is included as an appendix.
