SGBH 331 - The Political Philosophy of Hannah Arendt

4.00 credit hours
(Same as: SGBS 331 .) Hannah Arendt is one of the most important philosophers of the twentieth century. Her first book was a detailed analysis of the two major totalitarian trends that defined her world, the communism of Stalin and the racial ideology of the Third Reich. We will survey the broad range of her thinking on all the themes of classical philosophy. But, like her, we will concentrate on political issues, especially the threat to social order posed by totalitarianism.
