This highly original book is the first to explore the political and philosophical consequences of Hannah Arendt's concept of 'the banality of evil,' a term she used to describe Adolph Eichmann, architect of the Nazi 'final solution.' According to Bernard J. Bergen, the questions that preoccupied Arendt were the meaning and significance of the Nazi genocide to our modern times. As Bergen describes Arendt's struggle to understand 'the banality of evil,' he shows how Arendt redefined the meaning of our most treasured political concepts and principles_freedom, society, identity, truth, equality, and reason_in light of the horrific events of the Holocaust. Arendt concluded that the banality of evil results from the failure of human beings to fully experience our common human characteristics_thought, will, and judgment_and that the exercise and expression of these attributes is the only chance we have to prevent a recurrence of the kind of terrible evil perpetrated by the Nazis.
Fascinating and thought-provoking reading. I appreciate an author who has the ability to look outside the obvious, and write objectively in order to provide a more accurate version of history. Her bravery and deep insights make this reading well worth my time. Everyone will intellectually benefit from this book.
Brillant,very difficult, exploration of anti- Semitism and the Jewish position in difficult times. Extraordinary insights, a noteworthy contribution.
Difficult but interesting read
This book is genius but it is very scary. I haven't finished it yet for that reason. But I do admire the writing and all the information given. What I've been thinking about lately is what the writer could have meant by banality. (The aliens are laughing and now I think dancing because they really want to learn a lot more about English.)
The word is not used in the usual sense, meaning boring or common or uninteresting. More like all too common, and all too commonly not noticed. Evil is all too common all over the world, not just the Nazis need to be explored in that sense (which is why I really had to get rid of it after 1/3 of the way through it, that very intriguing -- not-- historical information about the Nazis). Meanwhile, let's just not read it and look at all the atrocious things that are going on right now, like especially the horrible things that are done to a Chinese religious group called the Fulan Gang, one of which is harvesting live organs from live people and then selling them to the richest people that could afford to buy them, maybe more unfortunately or not, cannot be obtained by poorer people, who would not need the bad Karma that would come from that, because they have enough problems already.
Now what could we say about the Chinese govt. or do about what they are doing (Please do remember the SARS epidemic), OTHER than something like unleashing the atom bomb on the whole country, first of all that would make Albert Einstein only so much more depressed than he ever was -- I don't think I want to share the rest of my thoughts right now -- like why the Chinese young people should (not) start a revolution there but it would be much nicer for Christianity to spread all over the world instead of violence or revolutions or any more false religions.
