"Hannah Arendt, Loneliness, and Tyrannical Thinking"

Dean's Lecture & Concert Series

A Lecture by Samantha Rose Hill, Senior Fellow at the Hannah Arendt Center for Politics and Humanities

Wednesday, May 11, 2022

3:15 p.m., Great Hall


"Is there a way to think that is not tyrannical?" Hannah Arendt writes in one of her notebooks. She councils, “The point is to resist swimming in the tide at all.” In this lecture, Hannah Arendt biographer Samantha Rose Hill will explore Arendt’s understanding of loneliness as the underlying condition for all totalitarian movements, while thinking about how isolation and loneliness affect our ability to engage in self-reflective critical thinking.


Short biographical statement: Samantha Rose Hill is the author of Hannah Arendt (2021) and What Remains: The Collected Poems of Hannah Arendt (2023). https://www.samantharosehill.com
