Volume XI of HA: The Journal of the Hannah Arendt Center presents different perspectives on the place of rage in politics today. Prominent thinkers such as Myisha Cherry, William Davies, and Pankaj Mishra confront what has at moments felt like the triumph of rage-fueled provocation over an embattled sphere of reasoned dialogue in contemporary American politics. Pointing to the uses and limits of anger, these essays challenge us to think beyond the opposition of rage and reason toward a public sphere that allows space for both. Volume XI also includes thoughtful talks from the past year by Catherine Liu and the artist known as V and an essay based on archival research in the Arendt Library by our visiting fellow Anna Aguiro on Arendt’s concept of natality. This issue marks the passing of eminent Arendt scholar and editor Ursula Ludz (1936-2022) with a tribute by her friends, collaborator, and readers Jerome Kohn, Ingeborg Nordmann, Wolfgang Heuer, Antonia Grunenberg, Marie Luise Knott, Patchen Markell, Thomas Wild, Jana Schmidt, Alexander R. Bazelow, and Roger Berkowitz.
The Perils of Invention: Lying, Technology, and the Human Condition
Edited by Roger Berkowitz
The Perils of Invention is based on three Hannah Arendt Center Conferences: “Human Being in an Inhuman Age,” “Lying and Politics,” and “Truthtelling: Democracy in an Age without Facts.” Contributions written for these conferences are placed alongside many new essays that reflect on the ideas they raised. The result is a freshly invigorated investigation into these critical and timely themes. The authors have diverse backgrounds—Arendt scholars, public intellectuals, novelists, journalists, and business people—and include Uday Mehta, Marrianne Constable, Nicholson Baker, George Kateb, Marianne Constable, Linda M.G. Zerilli, Peg Birmingham, Davide Panagia, and many others.
