Hannah Arendt Lecture 2024: "Das 'Leben des Geistes' ist politisch"

Feb 08, 2024 | 08:00 PM c.t.

Lecture with Anne Eusterschulte (FU Berlin)      

The Hannah Arendt Lecture in Tübingen took place for the first time in 2023 to mark the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Leibniz Kolleg at the University of Tübingen in February 1948. It is organized annually by the Leibniz Kolleg Tübingen and is intended to commemorate the German-Jewish philosopher, who was forced to emigrate by National Socialism, and her lectures on the elements and origins of totalitarianism at the Leibniz Kolleg in the 1950s. In this way, the central task of the Leibniz Kolleg, the promotion of democratic, political and social responsibility of the students after the deep involvement of the universities and the sciences in National Socialism, which was inscribed in the program at the time of its founding by Carlo Schmid and Romano Guardini, is also taken up.

The lecture is not about a philological interpretation of Hannah Arendt's work, but about bringing her influential thinking as a philosopher and political theorist closer to a wider audience. The lecture is also intended to promote Arendt's influence on contemporary theory formation in the humanities and social sciences and to make visible the traces of her thought and the critical interdisciplinary examination of it in current trends in philosophy, literature, the arts, social sciences and gender studies.

Prof. Dr. Anne Eusterschulte is one of the general editors of the Kritische Gesamtausgabe and Professor of the History of Philosophy at Freie Universität Berlin.
