Summary
This book focuses on what Hannah Arendt famously calls "the raison d'être of politics": freedom. The collection of essays clarifies her flagship idea of political freedom in relation to other key Arendtian themes such as liberation, revolution, civil disobedience, and the right to have rights. Examining her political freedom in comparison to its major rivals such as negative liberty as non-interference, and neo-republican freedom as non-domination, it also analyzes diverse forms of oppression and domination that must be central to the debate over freedom, and discusses what institutional arrangements we need if we are to house freedom in Arendt's sense of the term.0In addressing these issues, the contributors juxtapose Arendt with a number of thinkers from Isaiah Berlin, John Rawls and Philip Pettit to Karl Marx, Frantz Fanon and Geoffroy de Lagasnerie. They also consider the continuing relevance of Arendt's work to some of the most dramatic events in recent years, including the current global refugee crisis, the Arab uprisings of the 2010s, and the ongoing crisis of liberal democracy in the West and beyond
