Marion Muller-Colard, Clémence Pollet: Hannah Arendt's Little Theater

Marion Muller-Colard, Clémence Pollet

Hannah Arendt's Little Theater

Translated by Anna Street

Hardcover, 64 pages


Let’s find the stage of human affairs

Hannah Arendt is not at all keen to build an edifice of ideas or to develop abstract concepts. Rather, she gets on to the stage herself! To enter the scene of her little theater means to take matters into her own hands, take responsibility, to act. In short: Thinking is acting! Whereas the bureaucrats can conceive of only one thing: to build a world out of paper.
