Praise for Hannah Arendt's Thinking Without a Banister:
“Almost every essay in this book contains “pearls” of Arendt’s tonically subversive thinking, and many of her observations push readers to think harder about the language in which political activity is conducted.”
—The New York Times Book Review
“This second volume of some 40 essays, interviews, conference presentations, acceptance speeches, letters and reviews, edited and introduced by Arendt scholar Kohn, reveals a wide focus, including the relationship of theory to practice, American elections, the Cold War, freedom, civic responsibility, and happiness….[Arendt] emerges as startlingly prescient: in an interview in 1973, for example, she emphasized that a free press is crucial in a democracy….A challenging, densely argued, provocative collection.”
"The collection gives rare insights into Arendt’s personal opinions and reflections on her own work.... Contains a variety that will be illuminating and fascinating for both Arendt novices and experts."
