Hannah Arendt: The Last Interview: And Other Conversations - Hannah Arendt These interviews with Arendt are interesting and somewhat disconnected vignettes. Arendt is undoubtedly brilliant, but also, somehow, (perhaps intentionally) off-putting and brash.

I guess my point is that these interviews are not meant to be read as entities unto themselves. Perhaps I'll give some of them a reread next time I finish one of Arendt's own pieces.
