The past year has seen a resurgence of interest in the political thinker Hannah Arendt, “the theorist of beginnings,” whose work probes the logics underlying unexpected transformations—from totalitarianism to revolution. A work of striking originality, The Human Condition is in many respects more relevant now than when it first appeared in 1958. In her study of the state of modern humanity, Hannah Arendt considers humankind from the perspective of the actions of which it is capable. The problems Arendt identified then—diminishing human agency and political freedom, the paradox that as human powers increase through technological and humanistic inquiry, we are less equipped to control the consequences of our actions—continue to confront us today. This new edition, published to coincide with the sixtieth anniversary of its original publication, contains Margaret Canovan’s 1998 introduction and a new foreword by Danielle Allen. A classic in political and social theory, The Human Condition is a work that has proved both timeless and perpetually timely.

An odorless baby found orphaned in a Paris gutter in 1738 grows to become a monster obsessed with his perfect sense of smell and a desire to capture, by any means, the ultimate scent that will make him human. Reader's Guide available. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.
Sabiduria para el Fin de los Tiempos es un comentario sobre los primeros doce capItulos del libro de Proverbios, y pueden ser usados en un estudio en grupo, o leIdo por uno mismo. Para un estudio mAs fAcil, las Escrituras se incluyen en lInea con el comentario. El libro de Proverbios tiene que ver con adquirir entendimiento y sabidurIa para entender parAbolas y declaraciOn; palabras de sabios y sus enigmas (muchos de los cuales son profEticos). Este utiliza especialmente el contraste como mEtodo de hacerse entender en mUltiples niveles. Por ejemplo: El necio se contrasta con la persona sabia. "Necio" viene de una palabra de raIz oscura que significa "ser perverso." El loco rehUsa recibir correcciOn, aunque esto serIa para su beneficio. La mujer sabia, y fiel se contrasta con otro tipo de mujer que va camino a la muerte y perdiciOn. Las buenas amistades se contrastan con las malas. Hay camino que al parecer del hombre natural es derecho, pero en realidad es camino a la perdiciOn. Hay otro camino donde parece que perderemos no solamente las cosas de este mundo -las cosas que hemos valorado y por las que hemos trabajado duro- posiblemente hasta nuestra propia vida. Este camino estA cuesta arriba y contra todas las probabilidades naturales. Este es el camino a la vida. Este es el camino a la bendiciOn. Esta es la sabidurIa.
