Hannah Arendt and the Banality of Evil
National and Kapodistrian University of Athens
Abstract: How can a Jewish woman, persecuted and imprisoned by the Nazis, cause negative reactions when she closely follows the trial of the Nazi “High Priest” for his crimes against humanity? How does her unconventional thinking and her daring to see "clearly" manage to disgruntle everyone, and how, while disgruntling everyone, can she still be regarded as one of the most important figures of political philosophy of the 20th century?
