Thinker, scholar, woman, friend—Hannah Arendt was all of these, all of these and more. Theorists of Arendt have taken many approaches to her in recent years: Arendt is by turns an activist, an existentialist, a feminist and a refugee. But perhaps the best way of coming to terms with the distinctive qualities of Princeton’s first female professor is to approach her with all of the expectation for variety found in an intercultural buffet. So come and sample some ‘Tastes of Arendt’ this November at a symposium dedicated to exploring different aspects of Hannah Arendt, her thought and life, through creative applications of her work to philosophical and political thought at large.
