This a poem from 1953 that Hannah Arendt wrote while she was working on The Human Condition. Instead of Amor Mundi, or love of the world, she begins with the reflection: I love the earth.
For those of you in the New York City area, this Thursday November 11th I’ll be in conversation with two incredible thinkers and authors, Skye Cleary and Madeleine Thein, about Hannah Arendt at Black Spring Books in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The event starts at 7pm! I hope to see you there!!
And finally, there are a couple of spots left in On Revolution, a virtual course I am teaching later this month at the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research!
