Violence and Evil. The violent and evil actions in Hannah Arendt My intention is to reconstruct the origin of these two terms in Arendt in relation to various parallel endeavors that she took into account as well as neglected. I am interested in parsing out what «belongs» to whom in her reflection on violence and evil (what comes from Benjamin, Kant, Schmitt and Heidegger?) and what precisely is «new». When speaking of violence, does Arendt in fact emphasize «something» never interpreted in such a way before?
