About the Author

Tama Weisman is associate professor in the Department of Philosophy at Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois.


"Tama Weisman's book is the long awaited analysis of Arendt and Marx. It carefully explains Arendt's ambivalent relationship to Marx's work and how Arendt's lesser known and never finished project on Marx's work led to the development of some of her key political ideas. Weisman convincingly argues that despite Arendt's misunderstanding of aspects of Marx's thought, Arendt's analysis of Marx helped her critique the political conditions that led to totalitarianism. It is a must for anyone interested in Arendt's work." -- Karin Fry, University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point
"Hannah Arendt and Karl Marx combines archival scholarship and philosophical inquiry to provide a comprehensive exploration of Arendt's own changing positions in regard to her subject. While making clear that Arendt misread Marx on key points, Weisman convincingly demonstrates how Arendt's appreciation of his philosophical significance and troublesome originality led to her analysis of ancient Greece and the political values of the democratic polis, and further to her investigations into urgent questions of violence and revolution, and the relations between philosophy, thinking, and politics. Arendt's deeply ambivalent engagement with Marx has long challenged scholars. This book will inform scholarship from now on, while illuminating the real contribution of Arendt's resurrection of a tradition of 'the political' in the modern world." -- Norma Claire Moruzzi, University of Illinois at Chicago
