Stephan Kampowkis systematic treatment of this question of relevance presents an original scholarly contribution of a hitherto largely ignored foundation to Arendts work. Kampowski begins by thoroughly discussing Arendts biography and bibliography, and then conducts an examination of Scotts and Starks edition of Arendts dissertation. Kampowski analyzes Arendts 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 Arendts 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 Arendts thought, tackling perennial and existential philosophical questions at the heart of every human being.
