Play It Forward Bookmark for Kordelia – 2″ x 5.5″ Watercolor & Black Staedtler Fine Art Pen

This is another “Play it Forward” bookmark.  You can read more about the game in my post here.   Okay, you are probably wondering why a bookmark for Kordelia would say “Nonny” on it.  Kordelia prefers to be called Nonny and most people do call her that.  I’m not very comfortable with such intimate nicknames and I just like the name Kordelia.  She was the first person I saw do Zentangles.  I’ve been fascinated ever since.  🙂

Hannah Arendt (1906–1975) was one of the most influential political philosophers of the twentieth century. Born into a German-Jewish family, she was forced to leave Germany in 1933 and lived in Paris for the next eight years, working for a number of Jewish refugee organisations. In 1941 she immigrated to the United States and soon became part of a lively intellectual circle in New York. She held a number of academic positions at various American universities until her death in 1975.

She is best known for two works that had a major impact both within and outside the academic community. The first, The Origins of Totalitarianism, published in 1951, was a study of the Nazi and Stalinist regimes that generated a wide-ranging debate on the nature and historical antecedents of the totalitarian phenomenon. The second, The Human Condition, published in 1958, was an original philosophical study that investigated the fundamental categories of the vita activa (labor, work, action).  More here….
