Livres de Hannah Arendt
Paru une première fois en français en 1961, Condition de l’homme moderne est le premier texte de Hannah Arendt publié en France. Cette réédition est accompagnée de l’importante préface originale de Paul Ricoeur qui reste à ce jour une des meilleures introductions à la pensée d’Arendt. Dans son avant-propos inédit, Laure Adler montre comment le texte d’Arendt fut et reste visionnaire dans l’éclairage qu’il jette sur les urgences d’aujourd’hui.
During her years in Paris, Arendt’s principal concern was with the transformation of antisemitism from a social prejudice to a political policy, which would culminate in the Nazi “final solution” to the Jewish question–the physical destruction of European Jewry. After France fell at the beginning of World War II, Arendt escaped from an internment camp in Gurs and made her way to the United States. Almost immediately upon her arrival in New York she wrote one article after another calling for a Jewish army to fight the Nazis, and for a new approach to Jewish political thinking. After the war, her attention was focused on the creation of a Jewish homeland in a binational (Arab-Jewish) state of Israel.
Although Arendt’s thoughts eventually turned more to the meaning of human freedom and its inseparability from political life, her original conception of political freedom cannot be fully grasped apart from her experience as a Jew. In 1961 she attended Adolf Eichmann’s trial in Jerusalem. Her report on that trial, Eichmann in Jerusalem, provoked an immense controversy, which culminated in her virtual excommunication from the worldwide Jewish community. Today that controversy is the subject of serious re-evaluation, especially among younger people in America, Europe, and Israel.
The publication of The Jewish Writings–much of which has never appeared before–traces Arendt’s life and thought as a Jew. It will put an end to any doubts about the centrality, from beginning to end, of Arendt’s Jewish experience.
A work of striking originality, The Human Condition is in many respects more relevant today than when it first appeared in 1958. In her study of the state of modern humanity, Hannah Arendt considers humankind in terms of its ever-expanding capabilities. Her analysis reveals a troubling paradox: that as human powers increase through technological and humanistic inquiry, we are less equipped to control the consequences of our actions.
This new edition contains Margaret Canovan’s 1998 introduction and a new foreword by Danielle Allen. A classic in political and social theory, The Human Condition offers a penetrating analysis of a conundrum that has only become more acute in the 21st century.
Hannah Arendt: The Last Interview and Other Conversations is an extraordinary portrait of one of the twentieth century's boldest and most original thinkers. As well as Arendt's last interview with French journalist Roger Errera, the volume features an important interview from the early 60s with German journalist Gunter Gaus, in which the two discuss Arendt's childhood and her
escape from Europe, and a conversation with acclaimed historian of the Nazi period, Joachim Fest, as well as other exchanges.
These interviews show Arendt in vigorous intellectual form, taking up the issues of her day with energy and wit. She offers comments on the nature of American politics, on Watergate and the Pentagon Papers, on Israel; remembers her youth and her early experience of anti-Semitism, and then the swift rise of the Hitler; debates questions of state power and discusses her own processes of thinking and writing. Hers is an intelligence that never rests, that demands always of her interlocutors, and her readers, that they think critically. As she puts it in her last interview, just six months before her death at the age of 69, "there are no dangerous thoughts, for the simple reason that thinking itself is such a dangerous enterprise."

Le produit d'une pensée active, ancrée dans l'histoire de l'humanité, visant à améliorer la vie humaine.
Née en 1906, Hannah Arendt a connu les deux guerres mondiales ; sa pensée a été marquée par ces crises morales et politiques. Elle a alors conçu une vision de la philosophie comme profondément ancrée dans l'histoire, et du philosophe comme personne capable d'améliorer la vie active. Arendt est ainsi, de par ses œuvres, philosophe de la politique et de la civilisation.
Arendt met en avant la vita activa, en opposition à la vita contemplativa. Cette " vie active " est composées de trois activités ; le travail est la plus importante, car il assure la survie de l'espèce humaine. L'œuvre, elle, est nécessaire pour créer un environnement humain. Quant à l'action, elle est le propre de tout individu. L'activité est donc au cœur de la Condition de l'homme moderne.

'How could such a book speak so powerfully to our present moment? The short answer is that we, too, live in dark times' Washington Post
Hannah Arendt's chilling analysis of the conditions that led to the Nazi and Soviet totalitarian regimes is a warning from history about the fragility of freedom, exploring how propaganda, scapegoats, terror and political isolation all aided the slide towards total domination.
'A non-fiction bookend to Nineteen Eighty-Four' The New York Times
'The political theorist who wrote about the Nazis and the 'banality of evil' has become a surprise bestseller' Guardian
The Origins of Totalitarianism begins with the rise of anti-Semitism in central and western Europe in the 1800s and continues with an examination of European colonial imperialism from 1884 to the outbreak of World War I. Arendt explores the institutions and operations of totalitarian movements, focusing on the two genuine forms of totalitarian government in our time—Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia—which she adroitly recognizes were two sides of the same coin, rather than opposing philosophies of Right and Left. From this vantage point, she discusses the evolution of classes into masses, the role of propaganda in dealing with the nontotalitarian world, the use of terror, and the nature of isolation and loneliness as preconditions for total domination.
'Brilliant and disturbing' Stephen Spender, New York Review of Books
The classic work on 'the banality of evil', and a journalistic masterpiece
Hannah Arendt's stunning and unnverving report on the trial of Nazi leader Adolf Eichmann first appeared as a series of articles in the New Yorker in 1963. This edition includes material that came to light after the trial, as well as Arendt's postscript directly addressing the controversy that arose over her account. A major journalistic triumph by an intellectual of singular influence, this classic portrayal of the banality of evil is as shocking as it is informative - an unflinching look at one of the most unsettling issues of the twentieth century.
'Deals with the greatest problem of our time ... the problem of the human being within a modern totalitarian system' Bruno Bettelheim
Hannah Arendt’s insightful observations of the modern world, based on a profound knowledge of the past, constitute an impassioned contribution to political philosophy. In Between Past and Future Arendt describes the perplexing crises modern society faces as a result of the loss of meaning of the traditional key words of politics: justice, reason, responsibility, virtue, and glory. Through a series of eight exercises, she shows how we can redistill the vital essence of these concepts and use them to regain a frame of reference for the future. To participate in these exercises is to associate, in action, with one of the most original and fruitful minds of the twentieth century.
The political theorist and author of The Origins of Totalitarianism offers an “incisive, deeply probing” essay on violence and political power (The Nation).
Addressing the escalation of global warfare witnessed throughout the 1960s, Hannah Arendt points out that the glorification of violence is not restricted to a small minority of militants and extremists. The public revulsion for violence that followed World War II has dissipated, as have the nonviolent philosophies of the early civil rights movement.
Contemplating how this reversal came about and where it might lead, Arendt examines the relationship between war and politics, violence and power. She questions the nature of violent behavior and identifies the causes of its many manifestations. Ultimately, she argues against Mao Tse-tung’s dictum that “power grow out of the barrel of a gun,” proposing instead that “power and violence are opposite; where the one rules absolutely, the other is absent.”
“Written with clarity and grace, it provides an ideal framework for understanding the turbulence of our times.”—The Nation
Du 11 avril au 14 août 1961, se tient, à Jérusalem, le procès d’Adolf Eichmann – ancien chef de service du bureau IV B 4 de la Gestapo chargé de la « solution du problème juif en Europe » – pour lequel Hannah Arendt obtient du journal The New Yorker d’être envoyée en tant que reporter. En 1963, elle publie à la suite de ce procès son livre Eichmann à Jérusalem. Rapport sur la banalité du mal. Il s’agit ici de proposer une nouvelle approche de la réception du livre d’Arendt et de sa polémique à travers la lecture de quatre textes inédits en français.
