The Portable Hannah Arendt Penguin New York 2000Hannah Arendt ignited controversy for writing what has become the best known addition to this anthology of her work her coverage of the Eichmann trial and a recent film seems to have rekindled the whole debate Her detractors have charged her with giving succour to that most evil of enemies the Nazis or at best that she was a good philosopher but a bad historian Until I have time to read her critics in detail I personally thought I had better start by reading Arendt in her own words It is beyond the scope of a general reader s review of an anthology to uote the chunks of her writings that would be reuired to refute her critics point by point or at least put their critiues in context but I can now at least say that her conclusions are demanding and that often leads to misunderstanding or misuoting To fully grasp her ideas would in fact reuire reading shelves full of books especially when it comes to her academic texts although Arendt helps the reader by adeptly summarising in order to share her easy familiarity she read Kant at 14 with centuries of thinking while she develops her arguments step by step One other thing that transpires from her works is her consistency and intellectual honesty and any rebuttal of them needs to be well grounded indeedFirst of all I think reading her essay on the oft forgotten Rosa Luxemburg ought to put paid to any notion that Arendt was a poor historian It was interesting to learn not only about the Polish born revolutionary s life here yes I used to have a poster of her on my wall but how her work brought her into conflict but not enmity with Lenin somewhat surprising for a Marxist one might have been tempted to think and anticipated many of the failings of the Soviet Union But that s not all by any means Arendt points out that Luxemburg s murder and that of Karl Liebknecht in 1999 was sanctioned by the Weimar authorities and thus marked a tipping point that led to Hitler She explains this far better than I so if you want to know read the bookNow for her famous series of reports in The New Yorker on the 1961 2 trial in Jerusalem of Eichmann who had organised the deportation of millions of Jews from across German occupied Europe to Nazi death camps during the Second World War In her subtitle to the piece Arendt coined the now famous phrase the banality of evil because she concluded Eichmann was a not a born monster but rather an utter non entity as a person who came to do monstrous deeds in a monstrous society Indeed Eichmann comes across as a pettifogging bureaucrat in the archive footage used in Margarethe von Trotta s much maligned biopicEichmann was well aware of what he had done and even used to boast about it but he was simply thoughtless incapable of thinking beyond Nazi clich s and even when the hangman slipped the noose around his neck To have depicted Eichmann as a monster would have been akin to the Devil appearing in a medieval morality plays which reminds us that Shakespeare s Iago was far terrifying precisely because he was human although Arendt says Eichmann was duller than Iago but that proves her pointThat went against the grain for many who effectively said and still say that that was tantamount to letting Eichmann off the hook What raised even hackles was her contention that there was cooperation between the Nazi rulers and Jewish authorities NB by no means Jews as a whole leading to the destruction of the latter s own people because Eichmann negotiated with Jewish leaders over who was to be deported from each community Only one such leader testified in Jerusalem and Arendt charged the court with the gravest omission in not devoting time to the issue One riposte to her report included in the anthology is from the American playwright Lionel Abel who charged that Arendt had made Eichmann aesthetically palatable and the Jews aesthetically repugnant While nobody is above criticism I submit the obvious point that Arendt suffered from persecution and nearly found herself on one of Eichmann s transports The point is often elided and it is one Arendt never dwells on incidentally I think it s to von Trotta s credit that she resists the temptation to recreate Arendt s escape from Camp Gurs In this light it is highly unlikely Arendt would have failed to sympathise with anyone who has suffered persecution let alone her fellow Jews including countless close friends and relatives Besides Arendt had already given her reasons for focussing on the Judenr te I have dwelt on this chapter of the story which the Jerusalem court failed to put before the eyes of the world in its true dimensions because it offers the most striking insight into the totality of the moral collapse the Nazis caused in respectable European society Tragically this rings true because the Nazis were perversely and infamously capable of making others do some of their dirty work for them including Jews such as the Kapos and the Brenners chillingly portrayed by Russian war correspondent Vasily Grossman in his epic work Life and Fate As to the hand wringing testimony of the former community leader who rhetorically asked the court What could we have done Arendt answers that while resistance was impossible it would have been better for the Jewish leaders to simply do nothing Chaos would have been helpful and such people as were able to flee before boarding the transports had at least a chance to surviveIn her own words again she summed up her approach as fiat veritas et pereat mundus which translates as let the truth be told though the world may perish or to put it another way issues cannot be ducked just because they are thorny If that sounds trite to anyone then I invite them to read Arendt s thirty page disuisition on the inevitability of truth winning outIf I have one criticism to make of the anthology it is that her academic work is often less readable than the Eichmann report but as I said earlier the former is inevitably demanding but always thought provoking and illuminatingFor instance it was by no means immediately obvious what the point is of her long exposition on the differences between the public and private domain until I next read a passing reference to the theme in The Social uestion As an example of her consistency it crops up again in her discussion of forced desegregation in the 1950s which she said was none of a government s business and as a non American I wouldn t mind reading about thatIf my reading of other texts is correct Arendt believes the French Revolution to have paved the road to hell with good intentions namely to have paid too much attention to the pressing needs of the destitute masses which she deems to be a private rather than a public matter The American Revolution she adds was superior to the French one because it was not swayed by such inappropriate and self defeating aims She does recognise that the American Revolution was open to charges of hypocrisy because its claims of euality before the law did not apply to the 20% of the population who were slaves but says slavery was Europe s fault I beg to differ with this latter point because the new Republic was much slower than the mother country in ending it Another uibble I have was the short space devoted to her views on Heidegger but maybe that is personal and not central to her work My main beef with the anthology however concerns the preface which is leaden and dispensableAbove all I was left wondering what happened to such readable repositories of vast learning like Arendt Here was someone who could deftly uote from Plato in Greek from Heine in German or Shakespeare in English and describe her approach to the truth by paraphrasing medieval Latin axioms All of this mind you from someone whose chosen field was philosophy Again this does not make her infallible but it certainly makes her arguments most compelling and very readablehttpbooksihavebeenblogspotcomes Martin Michael Roberts 2013
