Is there such a thing as the Banality of Evil?
I've read Hannah Arendt's New Yorker articles.
But a consensus against her views has been building ever since she wrote Eichmann in Jerusalem
Now I'm awaiting a copy of Bettina Stangneth's book.
And there are plenty of other recent pieces trying to reason why Arendt reached the conclusions she did.
It's one of humanity's enduring questions: where does evil begin?
