Please join us for a showing of the film "Hannah Arendt" on Wednesday, Feb. 26th at 6:30 p.m. in the SURC Theatre.
Arendt was one of the most important political philosophers of the 20th century. The film focuses on her attempts to understand Adolf Eichmann's moral reasoning (or lack thereof) during the Shoah -- his official duties being the deportation of Jews, Roma, Slavs, and other "undesirables" to death camps and slave labor camps. Her conclusion, simply put, was that Eichmann was not acting out of some fanatical anti-Semitism but instead functioned as a bureaucrat who avoided the burden of thinking about or judging what he was doing. This idea of the "banality of evil" generated and continues to generate a fair amount of controversy.
Dr. Goerger and Dr. Coe will lead a discussion following the film.
