Hannah Arendt — Complete Works. Critical Edition Volume 17

This critical edition is the first publication to present all of Hannah Arendt’s published and unpublished works in a philologically reliable scholarly edition with critical commentary.

Hannah Arendt composed distinct English and German versions of nearly all of her books and many of her essays. This critical edition makes the fundamentally plural dimension of her works visible and accessible as never before.

The critical edition has been conceived as a technologically innovative hybrid, appearing in both print and digital forms, which is particularly appropriate to Arendt’s plural corpus. Taken together, the print books and the web portal, each with its own strengths, enhance the potential of both media.
