The Human Condition (Second Edition)

The Human Condition (Second Edition)

by Hannah Arendt

A work of striking originality, The Human Condition is in many respects more relevant now than when it first appeared in 1958. The problems Arendt identified then—diminishing human agency and political freedom, the paradox that as human power increase through technological and humanistic inquiry, we are less equipped to control the consequences of our actions--continue to confront us today. 

This new edition contains Margaret Canovan's 1998 introduction and a new foreword by Danielle Allen. A classic in political and social theory, The Human Condition is a work that has proved both timeless and perpetually timely.
