Hannah Arendt is one of the twentieth century’s most important political thinkers. The German-Jewish philosopher was born in 1906 and grew up in Königsberg. She studied philosophy under Martin Heidegger and Karl Jaspers. When the Nazi regime came to power, she fled via Paris to the United States, where she lived until her death in 1975.
