Arendt

Famous quotes containing the word arendt:

    The trouble with Eichmann was precisely that so many were like him, and that the many were neither perverted nor sadistic, that they were, and still are, terribly and terrifyingly normal. From the viewpoint of our legal institutions and of our moral standards of judgment, this normality was much more terrifying than all the atrocities put together.
    —Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)

    ... the word “education” has an evil sound in politics; there is a pretense of education,
    when the real purpose is coercion without the use of force.
    —Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)

    Man cannot be free if he does not know that he is subject to necessity, because his freedom is always won in his never wholly successful attempts to liberate himself from necessity.
    —Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)
