Why Hannah Arendt Matters

We have many visitors to the Hannah Arendt Center. Throughout the years we've hosted a wide range of scholars from around the world. In 2014, we began a new initiative of collecting videos recordings of our distinguished guests answering the question, "Why Arendt Matters." We're happy to present our growing archive of their responses to the questions below. Also available as a playlist on YouTube!

Why does Hannah Arendt matter to you? Send us your 90-120 second response and we'll include it in our archive!

We hope you enjoy.
