One of the greatest philosophers of the 20th century and a hero of political thought, the largely unsung and often misunderstood Hannah Arendt is best known for her landmark 1951 book on openness in political life, THE ORIGINS OF TOTALITARIANISM, which, with its powerful and timely lessons for today, has become newly relevant. She led an extraordinary life. This was a woman who endured Nazi persecution firsthand, survived harrowing "escapes" from country to country in Europe, and finally had to give up her unique genius for philosophy, and her love of a very compromised man --- the philosopher and Nazi-sympathizer Martin Heidegger --- for what she called "love of the world."
