Hannah Arendt's Jewish Writings

Thinking in Dark Times

This chapter focuses on Hannah Arendt's Jewish writings. It argues that whether or not one agrees with Arendt's particular positions on Jewish political issues, her stance is of lasting significance: she assumes the existence of a Jewish people and a Jewish polity that is sufficiently strong, proud, and secure that all Jews have an inherent right to engage in vigorous political debate. Arendt's Jewish writings are a continuing model for engaged Jewish political speech.

Keywords:   Hannah Arendt, political writings, Jewish writers, political writers, political speech
