Sample text

Publicly, however, immortality and distinction occur primarily for those interested in politics. Arendt comments that not everyone would want to participate in politics. In fact, she describes herself as a political thinker, not a political actor. : 197). Arendt does not discuss this issue, but it seems that public self-disclosure is possible if one is interested in politics, perhaps in other areas of public engagement, but it will not occur for all and more often than not, the acts themselves will be forgotten.

She calls this phenomenon natality, the giving birth to the new. The unexpected in history, novelty in human affairs and culture are the result, says Arendt, of the capability we have to originate a chain of events through our actions. This is a crucial aspect of the idea of action because it assigns authorship to a deed as well as responsibility for the consequences of an action. Responsibility is a topic crucial to understanding Arendt’s discussion of action. She says that actions are “boundless” (Arendt [1951] 2004: 190).

The roots of Arendt’s account of labour lie in Aristotle’s distinction between the public and the private, between agora and oikos – the public square and the household. It is in the household that reproductive labour is undertaken, including child rearing and what Marx calls the “reproduction of our labour power”, and this labour has traditionally been the work of women. The fact that women have been denied access to the public square and cloistered in the home, responsible for the labour that meets our biological needs, is not something that Arendt overtly addresses.
