Announcing a new political theory series with Hannah Arendt’s work The Human Condition as centerpiece – its footnotes really. Bryan W. Brickner takes a (brief) look and finds Marx highlighting violence and an American exception.

Hannah Arendt

In living as a modern before post-modernism, Arendt theorizes with self-assured acuity; often more than most are accustomed to: for example, her Marx hits the mark.

Ew Publishing announces Hannah Arendt Footnotes, a 21st century political theory series celebrating her 1958 book, The Human Condition.

The new series on the Bryan William Brickner Blog highlights and celebrates Arendt’s 1958 book via its 21st century applicability. In the first posting, Arendt Footnotes: Marx, Violence and the American Revolution, modernity’s glorification of violence is noted with one exception: 1776.

“Arendt writes as a classic,” offered Ew Publishing’s Bryan W. Brickner, “meaning at the height of the times; she was run out of Germany by fascism, has citizenship in America, and gives back – to generations – with her teachings.”

In January, Brickner published Shivitti: A Review of Ka-Tzetnik 135633’s Vision (2015), and acknowledged Arendt’s work in his book; specifically, the role of otherness in violence.

“Arendt notes that the revolutions of the modern age,” continued Brickner, “share a common (Roman) enthusiasm for politics and the glorification of violence; she makes one exception though, for the American Revolution.”

“In living as a modern before post-modernism,” Brickner closed, “Arendt theorizes with self-assured acuity; often more than most are accustomed to: for example, her Marx hits the mark.”

Brickner has a 1997 political science doctorate from Purdue University and is the author of several political theory books, to include: The Promise Keepers: Politics and Promises (1999), Article the first of the Bill of Rights (2006), and Shivitti: A Review of Ka-Tzetnik 135633’s Vision (2015). He also writes political fiction, such as the novella thereafter (2013), and is the publisher of The Cannabis Papers: A citizen’s guide to cannabinoids (2011) and The Bryan William Brickner Blog, a resource for the political science of constitutions and the biological science of receptors.

Next Ew Publishing: Friday, 27 February, Black History, American Exceptionalism and Carl Sandburg’s Chicago of 1919, a William Abens special on the Bryan William Brickner Blog.
