    1. 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.

    2. Κυκλοφορεί ήδη στην Ελλάδα το πρώτο μέρος από τις εκδόσεις Νησίδες, θα ακολουθήσουν αλλά δύο. Ο τίτλος είναι "οι απαρχές του ολοκληρωτισμου, αντισημιτισμος". Ακολουθούν τα "ιμπεριαλισμός" κ "ολοκληρωτισμος". Η ανάλυση της είναι αποκαλυπτική. Πυκνογραμμενο, βαθιά διεισδυτική [...]

    3. I can’t begin to tell you how disappointed I was in this. More so, because I even agree with her conclusions. If there was ever a need for proof that even in history the rule is ‘show, don’t tell’ then this is it. She spends far too much time saying things that imply that she knows what the Jews or what those around them were thinking and feeling en masse – and all this did was make me wonder how the hell she could know such a thing. The best of this is when she finally gets onto Disra [...]

    4. Hannah Arendt provides a broad and in depth investigation into the sadly intertwined history of totalitarianism and the attitudes towards the Jewish people (from both Jewish and non Jewish points of view).The book is a very extensive and interesting review of both the status of Jewish people in the European world in reality and popular legends from the late medieval period to the end of the first world war.It also covers much of the the social, economic and political developments in European nat [...]

    5. Hannah Arendt is truly a master of language. While reading this I found that there were times when her argument went over my head due to my lack of vocabulary and her breadth of knowledge of European history. That being said, this truly was an eye opener for me. I think we all can interpret what we believe Anti-Semitism to be. However, hearing a concise argument about the realities of the time that allowed it to become not just a social but a political movement and how this movement was a contri [...]

    6. Such an important work, especially in light of current events. A sobering reminder about where the roots of the atrocities of World War II lie, and why it's so important we remain vigilant now.

    7. Brilliant, controversial, and dense. Arendt is a brilliant political philosopher, with deep insights about the condition of Jews in Western Europe, and how religious Judaism evolved into social and political Jewishness with all of the horrific repercussions that resulted. Arendt's theories and research are compelling, but often opaque and controversial. Despite being Jewish, she often seem anti-Semitic herself. Arendt draws conclusions that are currently relevant, having many parallels in our so [...]

    8. Jilid Pertama buku Asal-Ususl Totalitarianisme ini berkisah tentang hal-hal yang memicu lahirnya gerakan antisemitisme di Eropa, mulai dari mulai dari kelahiran negara-bangsa di Eropa yang kemudian memuncak pada kasus Dreyfus. Kasus Dreyfus, menurut saya, memperlihatkan betapa kasus kekerasan rasis, dalam hal ini antisemitisme, dapat juga merupakan interaksi antara kepentingan politik, agama, hingga ekonomi yang secara rapi terselubung. Buku ini memperlihatkan betapa sentimen politik, agama, eko [...]

    9. I feel bad giving this book such a low rating considering how detailed and illuminating it is. Unfortunately it was lacking in what I, and I assume many people, look for in a book on antisemitism. Arendt focuses her analysis on the historical development of antisemitism, covering events mainly in the 19th century, concluding her discussion with the Dreyfus Affair, but saying almost nothing on developments in the 20th century. Considering she wrote this book shortly after WWII, such an omission i [...]

    10. Arendt´s book is an interesting reading experience as for scrutinizing the emergence of antisemitism in the 1800s. The merits of the book are undeniable. The only thing that troubled me was the way Arendt writes. Sometimes it was quite difficult to hang onto the point of the text due to its complexity. Arendt is not the most reader-friendly author around.

    11. Interesting book and an interesting political theorist. Arendt's arguments are complex and extraordinary, makes you want to dive and swim in her thoughts. I know her arguments are opposed by many criticism, and sometimes her analysis are slightly complex in a way that might mislead you.

    12. The first of Hannah Arendt's brilliant reconstruction of the growth of totalitarianism starts off a bit slow, and can seem extremely daunting, but it's probably the best book on how anti-Semitism has fed fascist movements we've got.
