Occupation: Historian

Bio: 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.

Quote of the day

Genius is, to be sure, not a matter of arbitrariness, but rather of freedom, just as wit, love, and faith, which once shall become arts and disciplines. We should demand genius from everybody, without, however, expecting it.
