Vita Activa: The Spirit of Hannah Arendt

Sunday, Jul. 17, 2016

04:00 PM – 07:00 PM

Vita Activa-456w

The German-Jewish philosopher Hannah Arendt caused an uproar in the 1960s by coining the subversive concept of the “banality of evil” while covering the trial of Adolph Eichmann for The New Yorker. Romantically involved with German philosopher Martin Heidegger, Arendt remains a topic of ongoing debate, as reflected in this new documentary film.

HMH Director of Education Dr. Mary Lee Webeck will lead a post-film discussion.
