"Arendt remains one of the most original, challenging and influential political thinkers of the twentieth century and her work will no doubt continue to provide inspiration for political philosophy as we enter the twenty-first century."
—Majid Yar, Lancaster University, UK
Hannah Arendt: Radical Conservative paints a broad picture of the personal traits and professional achievements in the work of an extremely complex iconographic figure in twentieth-century intellectual life. This volume was written in response to continuing interest in her work and also to the bitter and sometimes emotional attacks of her toughest critics. Irving Louis Horowitz emphasizes her unique contributions to political philosophy. Hannah Arendt’s career is a lesson in the life of the human mind. Her reflections on our political universe are both interesting and compelling.
