"We Feel Our Freedom": Imagination and Judgment in the Thought of Hannah Arendt

Political Theory 33 (2):158 - 188 (2005)
Critics of Hannah Arendt's Lectures on Kant's Political Philosophy argue that Arendt fails to address the most important problem of political judgment, namely, validity. This essay shows that Arendt does indeed have an answer to the problem that preoccupies her critics, with one important caveat: she does not think that validity is the all-important problem of political judgment--the affirmation of human freedom is.
