Occupation: Historian

Biography: Johanna Hannah Arendt was a German American political theorist. She has often been described as a philosopher, although she refused that label on the grounds that philosophy is concerned with man in the singular. She described herself instead as a political theorist because her work centers on the fact that men, not Man, live on the earth and inhabit the world.
