In this text, Hannah Arendt considers humankind from the perspective of the actions of which it is capable.
The problems are identified as diminishing human agency and political freedom - the paradox that as human powers increase through technological and humanistic inquiry, we are less equipped to control the consequences of our actions.
This edition contains an expanded index and an introduction that analyzes the text's argument and its present relevance.
