The Portable Hannah Arendt (The Viking Portable Library)
coverThe Thracian Maid and the Professional Thinker : Arendt and Heidegger (Suny Series, Contemporary Continental Philosophy) by Jacques Taminiaux, Michael Gendre (Editor) (Editor & Translator).   

Appearing for the first time in English, this book by Jacques Taminiaux is a systematic investigation into Hannah Arendt's intellectual relationship to Heidegger, the implications of which are indispensable to understanding the philosophical choices of our times. Contrary to other recent studies on these two figures, Taminiaux claims "that Arendt's two major works... reveal at every page not at all a dependency upon Heidegger... but rather a constant, and increasingly ironic, debate with him." In the process, Heidegger's philosophical work is interpreted in terms of its own political significance....

Hannah Arendt in Cyberspace

By Caroline Kealey Presented at Communication Technology and Culture Seminars Graduate Program in Communication Carleton University.


Telecomputing has swept onto the scene as a radically new form of communication which challenges traditional notions of time and space. Computer networking's multipoint to multipoint format is an attack on the liberal-democratic forms of linear communications. In its "hypertextuality", networks muddle the norms of communications in liberal society. At root, cyberspace is a challenge to the fundamental structure of liberalism -- the dichotomy between the public and private spheres.

This paper will examine three central debates surrounding cyberspace, namely the issues of community, authorship and revolution and illustrate that these concerns are symptoms of the fluid nature of the public and private spheres in computer networks. Because cyberspace seems to defiantly wriggle itself out of traditional theoretical boxes which have been staples of communications research (including sociology, critical theory and political economy), a new model of analysis is needed to capture the essence of the issues rising from this technology. Hannah Arendt's paradigm of the ideal types of the public and private spheres offers a helpful framework to understand the central debates surrounding cyberspace. Using Hannah Arendt's typology, I posit that cyberspace is currently neither public nor private -- it is a social phenomenon which muddles the classic distinction between the public and private realms. As social space, cyberspace confuses the roles of individuals in mass society, stifling the technology's potential for facilitating true political action...
