Hannah Arendt Arendt39s first major book was The Origins of Totalitarianism 1951 which traced the roots of Stalinist Communism and Nazism in both antiSemitism and imperialism The book was controversial because it suggested arguably that an essential identity existed between the two phenomena She further contends that Jewry was not the operative factor in the Holocaust but merely a convenient proxy Totalitarianism in Germany in the end was about megalomania and consistency not eradicating Jews Arguably her most influential work The Human Condition 1958 distinguishes between the concepts of political vs social labour vs work and the various forms of action while exploring the implications of these distinctions Her theory of political action corresponding to the existence of a public realm is extensively developed in this work She argues that while human life is always found within societies the social being part of human nature political life was intentionally constructed by only a few of these societies as a space for individuals to achieve freedom through the construction of a common world These categories which attempt to bridge the gap between ontological and sociological structures are rigidly delineated While Arendt concerns labour and work in the realm of quotthe socialquot she favors the human condition of action as quotthe politicalquot that is both existential and aesthetic Another of Arendt39s important books is the collection of essays Men in Dark Times These intellectual biographies provide insight into the lives of some of the creative and moral figures of the 20th century among them Walter Benjamin Karl Jaspers Rosa Luxemburg Hermann Broch Pope John XXIII and Isak Dinesen In her reporting of the Eichmann trial for The New Yorker which evolved into Eichmann in Jerusalem A Report on the Banality of Evil 1963 she coined the phrase quotthe banality of evilquot to describe Eichmann She raised the question of whether evil is radical or simply a function of thoughtlessness the tendency of ordinary people to obey orders and conform to mass opinion without critically thinking about the results of their action or inaction Formation of ImperativesCommands in German formal Sie pl fam ihr singular familiar du Note that there are 3 command forms logically corresponding to the 3 forms of you Regular Verbs Gehen Sie Geht Geh lt gehst Note that in the du form the characteristic ending st is removed In the you plural familiar ihr form as With the singular familiar du one drops the pronoun Schreiben Sie Schreibt Schreib lt schreibst Verbs that add an e after d or t Antworten Sie Antwortet Antwortelt antwortest Note that in these verbs the added e is retained so that again only the st is removed gtllt Verbs w stem changes that retain the change Sprechen Sie Sprecht Sprich lt sprichst Geben Sie Gebt Gib lt gibst Nehmen Sie Nehmt Nimm lt nimmst Essen Sie EBt 113 lt iBt Lesen Sie Lest Lies lt liest Note that in the stemchanging verbs egti or egtie the du form maintains the vowel change In the last example only the t is dropped to maintain the s of the in nitive stem Verbs w stem changes in agta 0r augtau that drop this change Laufen Sie Lauft Lauf lt aultau laufst Waschen Sie Wascht Wasch lt alta Waschst Irregular verb sein to be Seien Sie Seid Sei 4 in nitive sem Note Sometimes the 1st person plural Wir form is included as a command but its use is really that of a suggestion rather than a command So Gehen Wir Let s go Essen wir Let s eat Usw Marlene Dietrich Born 27 December 1901 Died 1992 Place of birth Berlin Schoneberg Place of death Paris Buried in Berlin EducationMusik Violinist since age 18 First Theater role At age 23 soon afterwards started her lm career Important filmDer Blaue Engel Worked with Stemberg Billy Wilder Alfred Hitchcock Orson Welles Nationalized to American 1939 Awards American Medal of F reedom for her performances for American troops in North Africa during W WII Returned to Germany At age 60 got called a traitor by Germans In Paris since 1976 Memoirzlch bin Gottsei Dank Berlinerin 1983 Im port ant son gszlchhab nocheinenKojj er in Berlin
