Seyla Benhabib

What do extreme conditions teach us about human responsibility? Seyla Benhabib will try to answer this question by discussing one of the most controversial books of the second half of the 20th century in her lecture, Hannah Arendt’s Eichmann in Jerusalem: Fifty Years Later. Arendt’s book was among the first to shed light on the atrocities committed by Nazis in World War II, and it raised questions about international jurisdiction, crimes against humanity, and punishing the perpetrators of genocide. Benhabib will give an overview of the controversy and discuss some of the book’s enduring lessons and questions.

Seyla Benhabib is a professor of political science and philosophy at Yale University.
