Essentials Of Political Thought
As you saw in the excerpts from Arendt’s The Human Condition (and in the short video) and heard in my audio lecture, Hannah Arendt had a very specific view of political action. Based on your understanding of what she means by political action, can you think of an example in US history that describes a moment of action based on Arendt’s understanding of the term? Have you ever been personally involved in a moment like that? In your response, please elaborate as to why your example fits Arendt’s definition.
