||Homo politicus vs. The Social：Hannah Arendt's Political Thought|
|Date of Defense
||Arendt’s great contribution to contemporary political thought is her conceptualization of political action as a distinct category of philosophical enquiry. In this paper, the concept of "the social" is intended to explain how modern society limits our freedom and emphasizes that "political freedom" is an irreversible part of modern society. |
Modern political philosophy is faced with new situation: There is tension between the "the social" and politics. For modern liberalism or socialism, society is regarded as an autonomous organism and political became a kind of governance function. What is more important is that "freedom" has lost its condition as a state of collective action, replaced by the definition and expression of the free from the political which constitutes the governance model of modern society.
In response to this phenomenon, then this article attempts to discuss is that in modern society, we need to better understand in so far as: how we prevent us and others from the freedom.
