    Hannah Arendt And Education: Renewing Our Common World is the first book to bring together a collection of essays on Hannah Arendt and education. The contributors contend that Arendt offers a unique perspective, one which enhances the liberal and critical traditions' call for transforming education so that it can foster the values of democratic citizenship and social justice. They focus on a wide array of Arendtian concepts?such as natality, action, freedom, public space, authority and judgment?which are particularly relevant for education in a democratic society. Teachers, educators, and citizens in general who are interested in democratic or civic education would benefit from reading this book.

    Foreword -- Introduction -- The Paradox of Natality: Teaching in the Midst of Belatedness -- Hannah Arendt on Authority: Conservatism in Education Reconsidered -- Education for Judgment: An Arendtian Oxymoron? -- Contesting Utopianism: Hannah Arendt and the Tensions of Democratic Education -- Multicultural Education and Arendtian Conservatism: On Memory, Historical Injury, and Our Sense of the Common -- Is Hannah Arendt a Multiculturalist? -- Hannah Arendt on Politicizing the University and Other Clich├ęs -- The Eclipse of Thinking: An Arendtian Critique of Cooperative Learning -- What and How We Learned from Hannah Arendt: An Exchange of Letters
