Friends on the Way

James Bernauer, S.J.

Fordham University Press

This chapter examines the theological belief and philosophy of German Jewish theorist Hannah Arendt from a Catholic perspective. It delineates the common ground that Arendt puts forward for human cooperation and solidarity, and analyses her criticism on Christianity, which was fundamental for her own articulation of worldly faith. It also discusses the relevance of her notion of forgiveness to Jewish–Catholic relations in general and to Jewish–Jesuit reconciliation in particular.

Keywords:   Hannah Arendt, Jewish theorist, human cooperation, solidarity, forgiveness, Jewish–Catholic relations, Jewish–Jesuit reconciliation
