*Hannah Arendt and Isaiah Berlin*, Kei Hiruta

 

Hannah Arendt and Isaiah Berlin are giants of twentieth century political thought. They tower over other philosophers, social scientists, and other intellectuals. Moreover, they share many commonalities such as their Jewish heritage and their commitment to human freedom. At the same time they approach freedom differently from one another. Kei Hiruta offers a novel exploration of their similarities and differences from an account of their personal experiences with each other rather than a dry textual analysis. Remarkably, this is a rare depiction of a "beef" between political philosophers that will allow the reader to understand their ideas in new ways.
