LOPEZ MERINO, María José. Indignation and Politics: reflections from Hannah Arendt’s thinking. Alpha [online]. 2014, n.38, pp.243-252. ISSN 0718-2201.

Starting from highlighting some specific moments in Arendt’s works critically dealing with sentimentality matters, we will focus on a specific aspect: the place of indignation when narrating, telling, and constructing the history of a community and, at the same time, opening a public space. This is characterized by Arendt as an elementary space, where others appear to me and I appear before them. (Arendt, Human Condition 221), originating the political aspect. This view allows us to rebuild the possible relationship between indignation and politics in this German author’s views.

Keywords : Indignation; Feelings; Politics; History; Public Space.
