Abstract:

The ethics of memory has become an important part of the intellectual landscape in continental Europe. An important voice in the debate concerning the ethics of remembering as well as on philosophy after Auschwitz is Hannah Arendt. This paper explores Arendt’s thoughts on the Banality of Evil and the Politics and Truth, in the hope that the philosophy after Auschwitz about an Ethics of remembering will be contemplated again, and readers will build up the inner structure that Hannah Arendt thinks is necessary to fight the banality of evil.
