The Political Theory of Hannah Arendt: The Problem of Evil and the Origins of Totalitarianism

A five-week seminar for sixteen school teachers to study three major works by political theorist Hannah Arendt.

During this five-week seminar we will study intensively several key works by the political theorist, Hannah Arendt. These works shed light on the problem of evil and the use of terror in the contemporary age, and provide a philosophical perspective on current debates about the use of violence to settle political conflicts, about the conditions of democracy, and about the scope and importance of human rights.
