Abstract:I examine four dimensions of Arendt's political ethic: her critique of the political shortcomings of conscience; her attempt to derive a political ethic from the conditions of political action rather than from the potentially anti-political preoccupations of morality; her inquiry into the nature of political subjectivity; and her insights into education in light of the disjunction between moral preoccupations and the morally unsettling demands of political action. Arendt makes the case for an ethic that can withstand "the perplexities of action" and her writings call for an approach to education that prepares students for these perplexities within the context of the necessary protectiveness of the educational realm.
