Overview

In Love and Saint Augustine, Joanna Vecchiarelli Scott and Judith Chelius Stark make Arendt's important early work accessible for the first time. Here is a completely corrected and revised English translation that incorporates Arendt's own substantial revisions and provides additional notes based on letters, contracts, and other documents. Scott and Stark demonstrate how Arendt's early work on Augustine provides the key to her later critique of modernity. Love and Saint Augustine will be of interest to anyone who wishes to trace the history of social thought in the twentieth century.

"The editors' admirably clear, extensive interpretive essay helps situate the dissertation within Arendt's thought and life, with special attention to Arendt and Martin Heidegger, and to Arendt and Karl Jaspers."--Choice

"Scott and Stark's conclusions about the cohesive evolution of Arendt's thought are compelling."--Library Journal

"Scott and Stark are to be commended for their painstaking reconstruction."--George McKenna, First Things

"A revelation that may force us to reconsider the traditional interpretation of Arendt's work."--Kirkus Reviews

Hannah Arendt (1906-1975) was the author of The Human Condition and Lectures on Kant's Political Philosophy.
