Hannah Arendt and Karl Marx: On Totalitarianism and the Tradition of Western Political Thought

Lexington Books (2013)

Authors
Abstract
Hannah Arendt and Karl Marx examines Hannah Arendt’s unpublished writings on Marx as the unified project Arendt originally intended. This book traces and evaluates the development of Arendt’s thought on Marx, how his thought could be used toward totalitarian ends, and his place in the tradition of Western political thought. Going beyond an analysis of Arendt’s explicit appraisal of Marx, Tama Weisman develops a compelling critique of Marx inspired by but never developed in Arendt’s work —that with Marxian thought we risk the loss of our sense of awe and wonder in philosophical, political and worldly experience
