Hannah Arendt, born 14th October 1906 in Hannover; died 4th December 1975 in New York.

I’ve always thought Hannah Arendt could do with a bit more virtual celebration.

The Virtual Stoa celebrates a loose canon of socialist thinkers and actors in its venerated and long-established Dead Socialist Watch… but Arendt doesn’t really fit in there. In fact, she arguably doesn’t fit in anywhere.

Till now.

On this, the 32nd anniversary of her death in New York, the Code of Nature blog honours Arendt with this inaugural installment of the Dead Arendtian Watch.

It promises to be an infrequent blog item.
