When an old truth ceases to be applicable, it does not become any truer by being stood on its head.

|Birth:||14th October, 1906|
|Death:||4th December, 1975|
|Profession:||Philosopher, Professor, Theorist|
Johanna "Hannah" Arendt was born in Linden, German Empire. She was a German-born American philosopher, political theorist, professor and author. She earned her Ph.D. from the University of Heidelberg in 1929. In 1959, she was named the first female lecturer at Princeton. She also taught at the University of Chicago from 1963 to 1967. Though often described as a philosopher, she rejected that label on the grounds that philosophy is concerned with "man in the singular" and instead described herself as a political theorist because her work centers on the fact that "men, not Man, live on the earth and inhabit the world." Her works deal with the nature of power and the subjects of politics, direct democracy, authority, and totalitarianism. The Hannah Arendt Prize is named in her honor. She wrote several books include: The Origins of Totalitarianism, Rahel Varnhagen, The Human Condition, Between Past and Future, Eichmann in Jerusalem, On Revolution, Men in Dark Times(essays), On Violence, The Life of the Mind, The Jew as Pariah, and Responsibility and Judgment.
