    About "Hannah Arendt"

      • Hannah Arendt

        Hannah Arendt 1906 1975 was one of the most influential political philosophers of the twentieth century Born into a German Jewish family, she was forced to leave Germany in 1933 and lived in Paris for the next eight years, working for a number of Jewish refugee organisations In 1941 she immigrated to the United States and soon became part of a lively intellectual circle in New York She held a number of academic positions at various American universities until her death in 1975 She is best known for two works that had a major impact both within and outside the academic community The first, The Origins of Totalitarianism, published in 1951, was a study of the Nazi and Stalinist regimes that generated a wide ranging debate on the nature and historical antecedents of the totalitarian phenomenon The second, The Human Condition, published in 1958, was an original philosophical study that investigated the fundamental categories of the vita activa labor, work, action In addition to these two important works, Arendt published a number of influential essays on topics such as the nature of revolution, freedom, authority, tradition and the modern age At the time of her death in 1975, she had completed the first two volumes of her last major philosophical work, The Life of the Mind, which examined the three fundamental faculties of the vita contemplativa thinking, willing, judging.


    1. This book makes clear that Arendt is amazingly well read Though, given 50 years, I am always amazed at how much more we are supposed to read (and often how much less we do) as modern academics and students rather than academics in the 1950s and 60s. While I can see the relevance of Arendt's writing on this subject in reference to the time the book was published and in response to authors like Sorel and Fannon, unlike many of the other reviewers I am not a fan of this book. Her, at times polemica [...]

    2. كتاب عظيم لأقصى حدّ بالنسبة لي والخمس نجمات هنّ لقيمته المعرفية بالنسبة لي وللمفاهيم التي اكتسبتها منه الريفيو قريباً إن شاء الله

    3. بداية توضح حنة وبشكل مبدئي بأن العنف بسبب عدم توفر البديل الحاسم في السياسة، وأن دعوات اللاعنف التي ظهرت في القرن العشرين كانت ردة فعل على الحروب والمجازر وتهديد الأسلحة الفتاكة.الكتاب في جزء منه نقد لليساريين في بداية ومنتصف القرن العشرين، ونقد للماركسية وارتباطها بماركس [...]

    4. I can feel myself slowly falling in love with Arendt. I already respected her, having been in the process of reading her "Origins" book for some time now. But in these shorter works of hers, you can really see her reasoning power and witness how perfectly balanced her turns of phrase are. What I most like about "On Violence" is that I can detect the research that has gone into writing this small essay. Her sentences are very compact, so in the end even a few of them can relay a lot of informatio [...]

    5. Had this been written by Joan Bloggs, it would be out of print and almost certainly ignored. But it was written by Hannah Arendt, so it's in print. And given the lack of books on violence, that's probably a good thing. Unfortunately I suspect that it can easily be misread. The historical context here is everything: Arendt isn't writing about violence, she's writing about violence at the end of the 'sixties and start of the 'seventies, when for a brief moment fairly large numbers of people though [...]

    6. Although structured as a three-part essay, this is essentially two intertwined essays in one. Each is interesting in a different way. The ideas of one, focused on the engagé moment, come out of the student revolutions in Europe and the U.S. (and, to a lesser extent, black power). This essay takes the reader back (if old enough) to an interesting moment that turned out not to have had a great effect, politically, on the future (its greatest effect, especially in the U.S has been the reaction to [...]

    7. كتاب موجز، أشبه برسالة، في تحليل ظاهرة العنف، لا عنف الدولة بالذات، وإنما لماذا نستخدم العنف، كمجتمعات أو كدولة، فيه استكمال للنقاش حول العنف النقي والسيادة بين فالتر بنيامين وكارل شميت، والذي تفرّع كثيراً بعدهم، ولكنه منشغل أكثر بتحليل العنف مجتمعيّاً وعمليّاً كما ظهر في [...]

    8. اليست الدولة سلطة الناس على الناس هي شكل من اشكال العنف ما الفرق بين العنف و السلطة. تعتمد السلطة على راي الاغلبية في حين ان العنف لا يعتمد على راي الاغلبية او العدد بل بعتمد على ادوات القمع التي تزيد و تضاعف من القوة البشرية. لقد اثبت علم الاجتماع و الطبيعة ان الانسان يمتلك نز [...]

    9. A fantastic treatise on the nature and function of violence, particularly in the modern period. However, the focus is overwhelmingly from the political dimension. Divided into three parts, parts 2 and 3 are essential reading. Part 1 oftentimes comes off as dated in its examples and outlook. But it is Part 2 that makes the entire book. In it, Arendt carefully delineates and differentiates definitions for "Power", "Strength", "Force", "Authority", and "Violence". All of which are useful if not nec [...]

    10. This was a really great work of political theory by Arendt. It explores violence, mostly through the lens of the 1960s when she was writing this book. It looks at the student rebellions across the world, in both democracies and communist countries. The coincidence of the uprisings is interesting, and she posits that they are both protesting for the same reason, albeit in different manifestations. Students around the world were looking for freedom. The students in communist countries were looking [...]

    11. اقتباسات من الكتاب:أرندت: كل انحطاط يصيب السلطة، إنما هو دعوة مفتوحة للعنفأرندت: كلما كانت سيطرة النزعة البيروقراطية على الحياة العامة أكبر، كان إغراء ممارسة العنف أكبرأرندت: التمرّد الطلابي ظاهرة كونية، لكن تجلياتها تختلف بالطبع اختلافا كبيرا بين بلد وآخر أرندت: إن تنوّر [...]

    12. In order to appreciate this book, you have to understand Hannah Arendt here is thinking of violence in political terms: war, uprising, rebellion, etc. That said, some of her points are applicable on the complete spectrum of human violence. The fact that it is a mean and not an end for example. That is served as a theater for the cause it is serving and that is what makes it terrifying when properly used. Arendt also wisely draws a line between purposeful violence and emotional violence, which he [...]

    13. Hannah Arendt does an excellent job of tracing the thread of violence through the quilt of violent acts.

    14. أثمة حقاً عنفٌ نبيل ؟كذاك الذي يُحيل القط أسد في لحظةٍ كي يحمي الصغار؟أم أني فقط أبحث عن ذريعةٍ لكي أشرب نخب رؤوس الظالمين في وضح النهار ، فلا يعاتبني الضمير ؟(لا تبرير للعنف)، هكذا يقول العاقلون لكني رغماً عني أحببت (حنّة) أكثر ، كلما رأيتها تُرافع عنه و تدافع وكأنما قد وجدت ل [...]

    15. تضبط حنه دلالات كل من العنف والسلطة، وتحدد أوجه العنف المختلفة سواء في الأنظمة السياسية او الثورات، وتندد بدعوات العنف وترى ان فيها نوع من اعادة لتوكيد التمايز الطبقي.وتنتقد الأحزاب اليسارية وترى انها ابتعدت عن فلسفة ماركس بتبنيها أسباب عاطفية كالاخلاق في ثوراتها وهو ماسع [...]

    16. Now, this was disappointing!Part I is clearly dated, I was ,nevertheless, surprised from Arendt's trivialization of black student movement, and generally from here "lumping" of the Neo-Leftists student movements across both sides of the Atlantic. Part II, Arendt introduces here definition of Power, Strength, Force, Authority and Violence. Her definition of Power seemed simplistic to me (Where's Gramsci in all of this I kept asking). In this part she introduces the basic premise of the book and t [...]

    17. While examining why the student movements of the '60s reached a boiling point, something I didn't expect when I first opened the cover, Arendt disentangles Mao Zedong's axiom that power grows from the barrel of a gun. By clearly and concisely distinguishing terms like power, violence, and authority, words we tend to use synonymously in political discourse, the true source of power is revealed--political action conducted in concert with others--which she then extends to explain the collective fee [...]

    18. كتيب يقع في ١٠٠ صفحة يتكلم عن ظاهرة العنف وظهورها مع السلطة وتوضح فيه أردنت أن العنف يطغى عندما تكون السلطة غير شريعة وما هو إلا أداة وأنه ليس على كل حال خيار غير عقلاني، كما أن خيار اللاعنف الذي إختاره غاندي يصنف أنه عقلاني، كما ترى حنة أن الوسائل في العصر الحديث بسبب تطورها [...]

    19. كتاب قيّم، ومع أنه كتب خلال النصف الثاني من القرن الماضي، فإنه يفسر سمات عديدة في عصرنا الحالي، بالإضافة إلى أن الكاتبة عملت في صفحات قليلة على عرض جوهر فكرتها، مع مقارنة ونقاش وافيين لعدة مفكرين اجتماعيين وفلاسفة وآرائهم.

    20. للتحميلarchive/details/one_340العنف لا يظهر إلا عندما تكون السلطة مهددة ، والسلطة والعنف يتعارضان وشرط وجود أحداهما يجعل الآخر غائبا ، ويقصد بتعبير السلطة (ليس القمع) ، وإن كان العنف يستطيع أن يدمر السلطة فهو بالضرورة غير قادر على خلقها.العنف أحيانا ذو الغاية قصيرة المدى يكون فعّال وم [...]

    21. Arendt’s book begins by commenting on the paradoxical nature of violence during the Cold War. She says, “The technical development of the implements of violence has now reached the point where no political goal could conceivably correspond to their destructive potential or justify their actual use in armed conflict.” She is, of course, referring to the advent of the atomic age. In an age, then, when the victory of one party of another means the virtual annihilation of both, what political [...]

    22. Sobre la violencia un ensayo sumamente corto pero con un contenido bastante denso. Es uno de los últimos escritos realizados por la fenomenal Hanna Arendt. El ensayo está dividido en tres partes, comenzando la primera parte con una exposición del mundo en plena Guerra Fría y el terror de toda una generación a la destrucción consecuencia de una catástrofe nuclear. En este marco, Arendt explora el imparable avance de la tecnología bélica, las interrogantes relativas a la utilidad de la gu [...]

    23. [Violence] phenomenologically… is close to strength, since the implements of violence, like all other tools, are designed and used for the purpose of multiplying natural strength until, in the last stage of their development, they can substitute for it 3 kinda fucked on race. 81The crucial feature in the student rebellions around the world is that they are directed everywhere against the ruling bureaucracy. This explains what at first glance seems so disturbing – that the rebellions in the E [...]

    24. Arendt's long essay/short book "On Violence" notes that war has become unglamorous and ineffective as a political force, yet it remains because we have not found an adequate replacement for this. This is perhaps understood as a more politically-minded equivalent of William James's idea 60 years earlier that we need to find a "moral equivalent of war" that will harness the cooperation and personal altruism that war can elicit, but without the horrific consequences that far outweigh the benefits.A [...]

    25. هذا البحث هو عبارة عن دعوة من حنة أرنت للانشغال بدراسة العنف كظاهرة مستقلة بذاتها، في مخالفة للسائد وقتها من اعتباره ظاهرة طبيعية أو هامشية داخل سيرورة المجتمعات البشرية. إن ما تحاول أرندت فعله هو فصل ظاهرة العنف عن السلطة. إن السلطة موجودة في جوهر كل حكومة؛ السلطة لا تحتاج ف [...]

    26. يكاد أن يكون أمرا غريبا رفض هانا آرندت لأي شكل من أشكال العنف و رفض أي تبرير له،و هي التي عاشت تجربة مريرة في معسكرات الاعتقال النازية و شاهدت بأم عينها قدر العنف النازي و عدم القدرة على الرد عليه بعنف مضاد.تتحدث آرندت عن العنف كنقيض للسلطة التي ان استخدمت العنف تحولت الى دكتا [...]

    27. يقول سوريل مشاكل العنف لاتزال شديدة الغموض .هذا فعلا ما وصلت إليه بعد الكتاب، السلطة والقوة و امتلاك الأدوات كل ذلك يزيد من تعقيد المسألة .في الثورة تقول : نحن نعلم كم هي نادرة ثورات العبيد وانتفاضات المضطهدين والمحرومين على مدى التاريخ ، وفي المرات القليلة التي حدثت فيها انت [...]

    28. Written in 1969, this is Arendt's brief appraisal of the 1968 student upheavals, and the civil disorder occurring across American cities at the same time. Some of it repeats ideas from "On Revolution" a decade earlier, but there is new commentary from her engagement (mostly sceptical) with the student literature. She didn't think much of Fanon, though acknowledged that he wasn't deeply studied by his self-declared disciples. Black Power movements also get a harsh assessment, though she recognise [...]

    29. تحلل حنة في هذا الكتاب العنف كظاهرة مستقلة , وليس كما معظم الدراسات بوصفها وسلة تابعة سواء للسلطة او الثورة او ما الى ذلك فهي تدرس ظواهر العنف من خلال مظاهرات الطلاب وثورات السود , وثورات التحرر ضد الاستعمار وتدرس أيضا وهو من أبدع أفكار الكتاب العلاقة بين السلطة والعنف , وتبين [...]

    30. مرة أخرى أقول أننا لا نعرف إلى أين سيقود هذا التطور كله، لكننا نعرف، او ينبغي علينا أن نعرف، أن كل أنحطاط يصيب السلطة، أنما هو دعوة مفتوحة للعنف - ولو لمجرد أن اولئك الذين يقبضون على السلطة سواء أكانوا حاكمين أو محكومين، إذ يشعرون بأن هذه السلطة تفلت من بين أيديهم، يلاقون على [...]
