This is in many ways Hannah Arendt's most humane and moving work. The portraits and analysis of the life - work of Walter Benjamin,Hermann Broch, Pope John XXIII,are insightful and sympathetic . As in her other works her authoritative capacity for grand generalization works convincingly. And she makes of each life a story, a unique narrative which has its own special quality .This is a great work and can be read and reread by anyone looking to understand how human greatness is manifested in the life of the mind.
