Praise

“With Eichmann in Jerusalem Hannah Arendt wrote the 20th century’s most important – and controversial – work on the problem of evil, and the least understood. The publication of Responsibility and Judgment is thus a particularly welcome event. For readers who know Arendt, the autobiographical reflections or the discussions of personal responsibility under dictatorship will be of great interest in understanding the background of Eichmann in Jerusalem or The Life of the Mind. For readers who don’t, essays such as "Auschwitz on Trial" will provide a superb introduction to her views – and a chance to probe, without hearsay or slander, one of the great thinkers of our time.”
— Susan Neiman, author of Evil in Modern Thought: An Alternative History of Modern Philosophy
