ALL TOO HU­MAN:

IN­TRO­DUC­TION TO A LIFE

Forward Magazine - - REVIEWS -

TOO SOON. TOO AN­GRY. TOO SMART. TOO STUPID. TOO HON­EST. TOO SNOBBISH. TOO JEWISH. NOT JEWISH ENOUGH.

TOO LOV­ING, TOO HATE­FUL, TOO MANLIKE, NOT MANLIKE ENOUGH.

WHAT FOL­LOWS IS A STORY OF A LIFE OF A PER­SON CALLED

HAN­NAH ARENDT. BORN INTO A LOST WORLD IN A LOST COUN­TRY

IN AN­OTHER ERA, A REFUGEE PHILOSO­PHER THINKER WHOSE NAME MAY SOUND FA­MIL­IAR. IN THE END (AND IN THE BE­GIN­NING)

RE­MAINS THE QUES­TION: WHY DID THIS PER­SON, AR­GUABLY THE GREAT­EST PHILOSO­PHER OF THE TWEN­TI­ETH CEN­TURY, RENOUNCE PHI­LOS­O­PHY?

AND, DE­SPITE THAT, DOES HER THINK­ING OF­FER A VI­ABLE WAY FOR HU­MAN­ITY

TO MOVE FOR­WARD?
