Hannah Arendt and Political Theory: Challenging the Tradition

Synopsis

Arguing that Arendt's work is of continuing relevance to political theory today, Steve Buckler explores Arendt's understanding of political theory: what it is, it's purposes and limits and how it is best undertaken. Buckler examines her most famous works- The Origins of Totalitarianism, The Human Condition, and On Revolution -alongside the less well-known and posthumously published material. His study shows that Arendt's unusual methods reflect a consistent and definite conception of and approach to political theory.
