Rewritten text of a contribution to Coloque internationale at Paris VII-Didero (25-26 April 2017)t, published as “Pourquoi Hannah Arendt? edited by Claudia Hilb and Martine Leibovici, in memorial for Anne-Marie Roviello and Etienne Tassin Link: http://lcsp.univ-paris-diderot.fr/Arendt.html
Important new point raised here: the essay by Sheldon Wolin at a conference at the New School one year after Arendt’s death, which puts her critique of the (then-new) culture of lies into the context of fundamental political theory. A new insight on my part.
