  1. Arendt’s Notion of Natality: An Attempt at Clarification.Wolfhart Totschnig - 2017 - Ideas Y Valores 66 (165):327-346.
    Arendt claims that our natality (i.e., our condition of being born) is the “source” or “root” of our capacity to begin (i.e., of our capacity to initiate something new). But she does not fully explain this claim. How does the capacity to begin derive from the condition of birth? That Arendt does not immediately and unambiguously provide an answer to this question can be seen in the fact that her notion of natality has received very different interpretations. In the present (...)

  • The Lost Treasure of Arendt's Council System.James Muldoon - 2011 - Critical Horizons 12 (3):396 - 417.
    Hannah Arendt’s On Revolution offers a critique of modern representative democracy combined with a manifesto-like treatise on council systems as they have arisen over the course of revolutions and uprisings. However, Arendt’s contribution to democratic theory has been obscured by her commentators who argue that her reflections on democracy are either an aberration in her work or easily reconcilable within a liberal democratic framework. This paper seeks to provide a comprehensive outline of Arendt’s writing on the council system and a (...)

  • On Visibility and Power: An Arendtian Corrective of Foucault. [REVIEW]Neve Gordon - 2002 - Human Studies 25 (2):125-145.
    Freedom, conceived ontologically, is power's condition of possibility. Yet, considering that the subject's interests and identity are constantly shaped, one still has to explain how – theoretically speaking – individuals can resist control. This is precisely the issue I address in the following pages. Following a brief overview of Foucault's contribution to our understanding of power, I turn to discuss the role of visibility vis-à-vis control, and show how the development of disciplinary techniques reversed the visibility of power. While Foucault (...)

  • Sujecto y acción en el pensamiento político de Hannah Arendt.Jerónimo Botero Marino & Yuliana Leal Granobles - 2015 - Signos Filosóficos 17 (33).
    Para Arendt, el sujeto político es esencialmente libre, único, singular e impredecible. Este se revela a través de la acción y del discurso en un entramado de relaciones humanas, donde los espectadores a través de la construcción de una identidad narrativa, son quienes determinan el significado del quién, y no el agente. Sin embargo, la dificultad es enorme, porque por mucho que se repita esta vinculación en La condición humana, la relación entre la acción y quién la lleva a cabo, (...)

  • Unpredictable yet Guided: Arendt on Principled Action.Wolfhart Totschnig - 2018 - Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology 50 (3):189-207.
    Political action is unpredictable because it unfolds among a plurality of independent actors. This unpredictability generates a fundamental puzzle: If an actor cannot know where her initiative will lead, what motivates and guides her in her doings? The aim of this paper is to develop and defend the solution to the puzzle that we can find in the thought of Hannah Arendt, namely the idea that political action is – or should be – motivated and guided by principles, principles like (...)

  • Apartar la mirada del origen: la crítica a la fenomenología política de Hannah Arendt desde el pensamiento impolítico de Roberto Esposito.Agustín Palomar Torralbo - 2018 - Isegoría 58:185-204.
    This article examines the place of phenomenology within Esposito’s thought on the impolitical. In order to do this, this piece firstly expounds the task of Deconstructionism within the framework of Esposito’s general thoughts about the community. Secondly, it shows the meaning and the relevance that the categories of subject and substance have for the metaphysical tradition of political philosophy. Finally, the article delves into the author’s reading of Arendt’s phenomenology when it comes to the concept of origin. The main purpose (...)

  • Arendt and Social Change in Democracies.Neve Gordon - 2001 - Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy 4 (2):85-111.
    This article explores Hannah Arendt's insights into the forms of social control operating especially in democracies, together with the possibility of resistance to such control. Since the way in which one defines freedom informs one's understanding of the techniques that suppress, regulate, and modify behaviour, the article begins by sketching Arendt's notion of freedom, and compares this to its liberal counterpart. That discussion leads to Arendt's conception of power, whose corollary is freedom, and whose suppression amounts to control. The institutional (...)
