This work aims to point the pivot of Arendt’s ouvrage: the liberty to. Her thought is hopeful
in spite of the nazi drift and the process of depoliticization in liberal-democracies because
she trusts the thaumaturgic capabilities of plural action among peers. Origins and The
Human Condition analyse the elements that characterize the Modern Age: on the one
hand, a regime without precedent that tries to change the human nature, on the other the
animal laborans’ triumph and the rule of nobody. They share the mass-society and the
psycho-anthropological transfiguration of monad-man: the roots of the enthralment. To
focus the totalitarianism Arendt uses the categories of undesirability, superfluity and
sacrificability, starting from the critic of human rights till the lager as laboratory where
every think is possible. To explain the eclipse of political dimension she suggests the
distinctions zoe/bios, oikos/agora, zoon politikon/homo oeconomicus, but the polis is a
deconstructive point of view, not a model.
