Why her thinking is still relevant for today's politics",腾达娱乐 focused on different insights of Arendt's political thought as totalitarianism, democracy and the importance of public debate, terrorism, human rights, the nation and national sovereignty. 

Our guest speaker for this educational and insightful evening was Professor Dirk DE SCHUTTER, who studied literature and philosophy at the KU Leuven and Georgetown University in Washington D.C and was a full professor until 1 October 2015 at KU Leuven (Campus Brussels) and University of Antwerp. He translated several works by Hannah Arendt into Dutch and publishes articles on 19th and 20th century philosophy and literature.  Our audience, consisting of around 40 students and local citizens, had the opportunity to raise their critical questions. 

One of the goals of the Library Talks Series腾达娱乐, besides the focus on the ideas and life of Hannah Arendt, is to lead people from outside the College of Europe to the impressive collection of books and electronic resources on European integration available in our Library and European Documentation Centre.
