Die Freiheit, frei zu sein

»Mein Thema heute, so fürchte ich, ist fast schon beschämend aktuell.«

Was ist Freiheit, und was bedeutet sie uns? Begreifen wir sie nur als die Abwesenheit von Furcht und von Zwängen, oder meint Freiheit

nicht vielmehr auch, sich an gesellschaftlichen Prozessen zu beteiligen, eine eigene politische Stimme zu haben, um von anderen gehört,

erkannt und schließlich erinnert zu

I would rather suggest to read the PDF instead of buying the printed book. Its definetively too short for a book. Yet it is still worth reading it.

Otra vez lo borda. Cómo sería de buena esta señora que la hubiesen matado los alemanes, los judíos, los WASPs, los nazis y los comunistas. Es un resumen de lo que son las revoluciones que viene a decir que sin formación y sin propiedad no existe la libertad.
Very fascinating read! Highly recommended. "With the birth of every child, with the birth of every idea, a just as small as radical, every historical experience and pessimism refuting, new start is made." How deeply positive and optimist of an idea. The author talks about taking the risk to think without a railing - possible free falls included. Thinking that bases on the disturbance, that emerges when the long assumed known is taken away (by a new idea) and new narratives take its place...

Sehr sehr lesenswert! Hannah Arendt war mir bisher nur in der Uni begegnet und ich fand Ihr Denken schon immer interessant. In diesem Essay entfaltet sie ihren Freiheitsbegriff, und obwohl es sich hierbei um eine sehr spezielle Definition handelt, über die sich vortrefflich diskutieren lässt, halte ich 'Die Freiheit, frei zu sein' für einen sehr wichtigen Text, in dem viele zentrale und wichtige Gedanken enthalten sind.

a very fascinating essay with an illuminating afterword. However, I would recommend the "thinking without a banister" edition instead of buying the isolated essay.

sicherlich Eckpfeiler Ihres Denkens, aber man merkt, dass Text ist 50 Jahre alt. Nachwort macht einiges deutlich

Es un libro finito y, como es habitual en Arendt, no por ello fácil de entender. Reflexiona sobre qué significa ser libres a partir de la noción de revolución.
