Thinking itself is dangerous.” Hannah Arendt in The Life of the Mind.In this workshop we will think alongside German philosopher Hannah Arendt to consider her concept of “the banality of evil.” Based on the Holocaust trial of Adolf Eichmann, we will compare an allegorical picture book, Hannah Arendt’s Little Theater, to the acclaimed Eichmann in Jerusalem, Arendt’s witnessing and analysis of the famous Nazi war crime trial.
