Cambridge Companion to Hannah Arendt by Dana R. Villa
Book DescriptionHannah Arendt was one of the foremost political thinkers of the twentieth century, and her particular interests have made her one of the most frequently cited thinkers of our time. This Companion examines the primary themes of her multi-faceted work, from her theory of totalitarianism and her controversial idea of the 'banality of evil' to her classic studies of political action and her final reflections on judgment and the life of the mind. Each essay examines the political, philosophical, and historical concerns which shaped Arendt's thought, and which prompted her to become one of the most unapologetic champions of the political life in the history of Western thought.

Books By Author Dana R. Villa
Public Freedom, Paperback (August 2008)
Argues that political freedom is essential to both the preservation of constitutional government and the very substance of American democracy itself. This book examines, among other topics, the promise and limits of civil society and associational life as sources of democratic renewal; and the effects of mass media on the public arena.
Socratic Citizenship, Paperback (July 2001)
Takes issue with those who would reduce citizenship to community involvement or to political participation for its own sake. This book argues that we need to place more value on a form of conscientious, moderately alienated citizenship invented by Socrates. one that is critical in orientation and dissident in practice.
Cambridge Companion to Hannah Arendt, Paperback (November 2000)
A distinguished team of contributors examines the primary themes of Arendt's multi-faceted thought.
Politics, Philosophy, Terror, Paperback (August 1999)» View all books by Dana R. Villa
Begins by focusing on some controversial aspects of Arendt's political thought. This title shows that Arendt's idea of the banality of evil - inspired by the trial of Adolf Eichmann - does not lessen the guilt of war criminals by suggesting that they are mere cogs in a bureaucratic machine.
