The Contemporary | Courtney Hodrick: Hanna Arendt & Temporality

Courtney Hodrick is a fourth-year PhD candidate in the German Studies Department at Stanford. Her research explores the intersection of literature; philosophy; feminist, gender, and sexuality studies; Jewish studies; and intellectual history. Hodrick's central focus is the Frankfurt School and her primary interest is the concept of modernity as crisis. 

Hodrick will lead a discussion about the German philosopher Hannah Arendt's concept of temporality as expressed in the text "The Concept of History, Ancient and Modern." We will also be discussing selections from Karl Löwith's "Meaning in History."

When you RSVP, you will be sent scans of the texts.
