An Evening with Hannah Arendt

The private viewing and post-screening discussion of the film ‘Hannah Arendt’ (2012) offers a truly remarkable experience for those interested in furthering their personal and executive development in the area of judgement.

The film centers on the life of German-Jewish thinker Hannah Arendt, one of the most original thinkers of the twentieth century. It focuses on Arendt’s observations and analysis of the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann, which she covered for The New Yorker. Her writing on the trial became controversial for its depiction of both Eichmann and the Jewish Councils, and for its introduction of Arendt’s now-famous and controversial concept of “the banality of evil”.

Facilitated by Professor Connell Fanning and our Practitioner Associates Dr. Assumpta O’Kane and Dr. Dave Kirwan, the post-screening discussion focuses on issues such as recognising the importance of personal experiences, enlarging mentalities, improving relationships, and understanding the difference between decisions and judgment in choice-making.

This 3-hour programme provides an excellent introduction to Arendt’s ideas on thinking and judgement and a unique opportunity for exploration of how her insights can be used to further personal and executive development in organisations.

Please contact us if you would like to offer this programme in your organisation.
