(p.249) Exile Readings
Thinking in Dark Times

This chapter focuses on the library of the philosopher and political thinker, Hannah Arendt (1906-1975). The library is a part of her literary effects that must first be described in its extent and historically conditioned makeup. Beyond that, the question arises of the apt way of tracking her use of these materials and her reading, as well as the references in the catalogue, peculiar to this collection and its individual volumes. Of central importance, finally, is how a nonarbitrary examination can yield conclusions about the processes of textual genesis and Hannah Arendt's readings under the circumstances of her emigration.
