Invisibility as a Political Problem (after Hannah Arendt)

Arendt's philosophy of appearance is wrested from the problem of disappearance and invisibility - under totalitarian regimes, under conditions of slavery and poverty. To better understand the intuition behind Arendt's persistent adherence to the notion of a freedom that coincides with the establishment and maintenance of a plural public space of appearance in which it can be realized, one must take into account the negative experiences against the backdrop of which this idea takes on its polemical value.
