Hannah Arendt, widely acknowledged today as one of the most influential philosophers of the 20th century, taught at The New School as University Professor from 1967 until her death in 1975.
The Hannah Arendt Center was established at The New School in the
spring of 2000. The center is dedicated to preserving Arendt’s legacy
and fostering the kind of participation in public life she exemplified.
Digitization of the vast collection of papers Arendt bequeathed to the
Library of Congress has been made possible by a generous grant from the
Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The New School’s Fogelman Library is one of
three sites worldwide to provide online access to the entire archive.
