Il pensiero secondo: Pagine scelte (i libri dello spirito cristiano)

By Hannah Arendt

Essere fedeli alla realtà delle cose, nel bene e nel male, implica un integrale amore in line with l. a. verità e una totale gratitudine according to il fatto stesso di essere nati.
 
Una donna è fra i più grandi pensatori del Novecento. in keeping with Hannah Arendt, l. a. riflessione filosofica sull’esistenza è un pensiero secondo, vale a dire che esso deve essere secondo l. a. realtà e venire dopo ciò che l’esperienza suggerisce agli uomini. Dallo stupore e non dal dubbio procede l. a. conoscenza. L’esperienza chiarisce all’uomo l. a. stoffa di cui è fatto e il senso delle sue aspirazioni. Questa raccolta di brani della pensatrice tedesca allieva di Heidegger. Un modo adeguato, anche in keeping with i non addetti ai lavori, consistent with avvicinarsi a una delle voci più brillanti e contro corrente del pensiero contemporaneo.
