During this quantity, in line with the sequence of Alexander Lectures she added on the collage of Toronto, Julia Kristeva explores the philosophical facets of Hannah Arendt's paintings: her figuring out of such options as language, self, physique, political area, and existence. Kristeva's target is to explain contradictions in Arendt's inspiration in addition to right misapprehensions approximately her political and philosophical views.

The first chapters describe how Arendt an unique perception of human narrative, such that existence, motion, or even notion, are just human after they may be narrated and hence shared with different people who, throughout the evocation of reminiscence, whole the tale and make heritage right into a condensed signal, right into a revelation of the 'who.' The 3rd bankruptcy concentrates on Arendt's paintings relating to her twentieth-century contemporaries, specifically Isak Dinesen, Brecht, Kafka, and Nathalie Sarraute. within the final chapters, at the physique and the Kantian suggestion of judgment, Kristeva deals a sophisticated severe exploration of Arendt's ignoring of the area of the subconscious spread out by means of psychoanalysis, an exploration that, mockingly, unearths the political strength of Arendt's popularity of herself as lady and Jew.

Kristeva's account of Arendt's 'philosophy of narrative' is obvious, coherent, forceful, and sometimes impassioned. a lot has been written in North the USA approximately Arendt's political paintings, yet little approximately her extra philosophical endeavours. Hannah Arendt: lifestyles Is a story makes a compelling case that Arendt could be the 20th century's purely real political philosopher.
