For Love of the World (Amor Mundi) is your portal to the bold ideas and respectful, deep conversations about contemporary issues that we’re having regularly at the Hannah Arendt Center at Bard College. Join us each month as we delve into the work of one of the most influential thinkers of the 20th century, Hannah Arendt, with renowned scholars and public intellectuals, and exemplify what it means to have a conversation of patient humility, in the Arendtian tradition.

Hosted by Roger Berkowitz Founder and Academic Director of the Hannah Arendt Center and Professor of Politics, Philosophy, and Human Rights, who writes and speaks about how justice is made present in the world. He is author of The Gift of Science: Leibniz and the Modern Legal Tradition, co-editor of Artifacts of Thinking: Reading Hannah Arendt's Denktagebuch (2017), Thinking in Dark Times: Hannah Arendt on Ethics and Politics (2010), The Intellectual Origins of the Global Financial Crisis (2012), and editor of the annual journal HA: The Journal of the Hannah Arendt Center.
