Homo Aristocus

Idealistic Studies 13 (3):226-239 (1983)
  Copy   BIBTEX


The death of any great philosopher invariably spawns a plethora of essays in defense, refutation, or explication. Indeed, the sign of the philosopher’s greatness can be measured by the number of essays his work generates. Hannah Arendt once commented on the generation of writers Karl Marx supported. This is as it should be. For greatness needs criticism as much as it requires testimony. And the testimony which follows is that of a defense; one which seeks to clarify a longstanding paradox in Arendt’s work.
