Product Description

Political theorist Hannah Arendt's earliest writing was a dissertation on Saint Augustine's concept of neighborly love. Kampowski explores the relevance of that material to Arendt's lifetime of work; examines Scott and Stark's edition of that student thesis; and analyzes Arendt's mature theories of action and ethics in relationship to her introductory work. A valuable panorama.

Publisher Description

Arendt, Augustine, and the New Beginning explores political theorist Hannah Arendt’s work from the perspective of her action theory and moral thought, putting to the test an intriguing interpretive hypothesis: that her juvenile dissertation on Augustine has permanent relevance to the entire body of her lifetime of work.

Stephan Kampowki’s systematic treatment of this question of relevance presents an original scholarly contribution of a hitherto largely ignored foundation to Arendt’s work. Kampowski begins by thoroughly discussing Arendt’s biography and bibliography, and then conducts an examination of Scott’s and Stark’s edition of Arendt’s dissertation. Kampowski analyzes Arendt’s theory of action, presented primarily in The Human Condition, and then her principal ideas about ethics as found in The Life of the Mind. Finally, having shown Arendt’s mature idea on action and ethics, he places them in relation to her argument in her dissertation, Der Liebesbegriff.

Kampowski here offers readers a valuable panorama of some of the most central aspects of Arendt’s thought, tackling perennial and existential philosophical questions at the heart of every human being.
