Hannah Arendt’s Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil is nothing short of terrifying. The striking candor with which Arendt uses Adolf Eichmann’s 1961 trial to bring to light the horrors committed under the Third Reich is so irreconcilable with what we want to be true about the moral compass of mankind that it may be easier to pretend these events are all fiction, just an appalling thought experiment as to how far a society is able to go towards injustice and evil under the right circumstances.
It is with great sadness that we share news of the passing of a cherished colleague and mentor, Professor Edward Hundert—fondly known to students and faculty alike in Arts One as ‘Ed.’
Carrie Jenkins and Carla Nappi, past Arts One instructors of the 2016-18 “Knowledge and Power” theme, recently published Uninvited: Talking Back to Plato (2020, McGill-Queen’s UP).
