Great compilation of Arednt's life-work, exploring the idea of thinking and how it relates to the body and to social action. Draws from two thousand years of philosophy to construct arguments about what thinking is, and how we use it. As this was Arendt's last work, published posthumously, some editing and final arguments needed more editing/work, but the book as a research document, and as a guide, is still excellently written.
