JWST582 - Hannah Arendt: Politics and Literature

The course will study Arendt's political theory, as developed in The Origins of Totalitarianism, and her writings on literature in the essays collected in The Jewish Writings and Men in Dark Times, as well as relationship between both. We will also consider literary examples by Lessing, Heine, Melville, Kafka, and others.
