von Hannah Arendt
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen What a mix., 1. Dezember 1999
This book contained an incredible mix of philosophy, journalism, sociology and psychology. How many writers would have had the skill, let alone the knowledge to pull off a work like this...not many. Regarding its content, the book almost requires its reader to prepare to read it by reading philosophy and history beforehand. I don't know that one could truly appreciate the book without having done that. A couple of the more memorable segments of the book are when Eichmann tries to invoke the moral philosophy of Immanuel Kant to justify his actions and those of his comrades and when (on more than one occasion) Arendt poses the haunting question of how the jews could have let themselves be led off to their deaths like lambs to the slaughter. This book warrants more than being read once; multiple readings would be worth the time and effort.
