Between Past and Future. Six Exercises in Political Thought.

ARENDT Hannah (1961.)


Available to view at our Curzon Street shop.

First UK edition. 8vo. [10], 246 pp. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, dust jacket. A near fine review copy, with the publisher's review slip loosely inserted. London, Faber and Faber.

A collection of six studies on political philosophy that variously respond to 'the series of crises that we face as a result of the breakdown of tradition, which formerly bridged the gap between past and future. As the traditional key words of politics - justice, reason, responsibility, virtue, glory - lose their meaning, we see crises developing in every direction, and no way of meeting them' (dust jacket blurb).

The usual themes of Arendt's political philosophy are all present here, continuing Arendt's major philosophy work The Human Condition in her unrelenting search for a new normative ground for human politics and community.
