Sample text

The break-up of some of her lifelong friendships that followed her reporting of the Eichmann trial was a bitter blow from which she never fully recovered. But the continuity of friendship was also a theme that threaded its way through Arendt’s work, knitting together the evolving patchwork of ideas into a complex pattern of political theory. The following two chapters relate the theme of friendship to two of those ideas: plurality and promise. The former, as we shall see in Chapter 2, was her defiant rejoinder to what she saw as the unique phenomenon of totalitarianism; the latter, as discussed in Chapter 3, was her response to the uncertainty inherent in the plurality she embraced.

The American dream’, as Arendt herself put it, was ‘the dream of a “promised land” where milk and honey flow’ and where the increasing affluence brought about through the development of modern technology ‘had the effect of confirming for the dreamers that they really had come to live in the best of all possible worlds’ (OR, 131). Whereas The Origins of Totalitarianism had focused on the immediate past and its import for the present state of political affairs in the mid-twentieth century, On Revolution approached the challenges facing the late twentieth century by focusing on events that had occurred in the second half of the eighteenth century.

For Aquinas, she suggests, this would have been ‘the vision of God [in which] the presence of no friends was required’, whereas for Thomas Jefferson the only ‘possible improvement on the best and happiest moments of his life’ would have been the enlargement of ‘the circle of his friends’ (OR, 122–3). Both ‘public happiness and political freedom’ are ‘revolutionary notions’ – and complementary notions – because each is ‘part and parcel of the very structure of the political body of the republic’ (OR, 129).
