About Us

The Hannah Arendt Center is an expansive home for thinking about and in the spirit of Hannah Arendt. The Arendt Center's mission is to think what we are doing. Towards that end, the Center sponsors and supports the highest quality scholarship on Hannah Arendt and her work; in addition, the Arendt Center is an intellectual incubator for engaged humanities thinking at Bard College and beyond, thinking that elevates and deepens the public argument that is the bedrock of our democracy.

As the intellectual cornerstone of Bard College's Center for Civic Engagement, The Arendt Center insists that liberal arts thinking is at the core of an enlightened politics. While policy questions are important, serious political engagement requires that citizens confront the intellectual foundations of the crises and challenges facing our world. The Arendt Center nurtures the foundational thinking that prepares students for active citizenship that can humanize an often inhuman world.
