Russian/Eurasian Studies Program, Political Studies Program, Hannah Arendt Center, and Center for Civic Engagement Present
6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
In spite of this, Arendt does return to the question of Russian revolution when she writes on the local workers councils (the Soviets). In this, she values the heritage of 1917, only to recognize that councils were soon suppressed by the Bolshevik party.
In this discussion between Roger Berkowitz and Artemy Magun, two Arendt scholars will ask whether Arendt was right in seeing the Russian Revolution as derivative from the French Revolution, whether her dismissal of Social Revolutions can be defended, and whether the revolution of her liking is possible in the present historical circumstances.
