Dr. William DeMars (Government and International Affairs), will present Hannah Arendt: In Search of Insights on Deliberation and Judgment.

Abstract: In search of insights on deliberation, both personal and political, I have turned to Hannah Arendt—as a companion on the journey rather than for an overarching theory.  Arendt (1906—1975) undertook her own personal and political journey, including romance, betrayal, three narrow escapes, flight as a refugee across land and sea, a productive and controversial exile in America, and many intense, transformational friendships. Along the way, Arendt made a series of judgments, not only practical judgments of what to do, but also piercing, retrospective recognitions—judgments of her experience of what had occurred and what was there in front of us.

 Lunch is available for faculty.
