Hannah Arendt and the Challenge of Modernity explores the theme of human rights in the work of Hannah Arendt. Parekh argues thatArendt's contribution to this debate has been largely ignored because she does not speak in the same terms as contemporary theoreticians of human rights. Beginning by examining Arendt’s critique of human rights, and the concept of "a right to have rights" with which she contrasts the traditional understanding of human rights, Parekhgoes on toanalyze some of the tensions and paradoxes within the modern conception of human rights that Arendt brings to light, arguing that Arendt’s perspective must be understood as phenomenological and grounded in a notion of intersubjectivity that she develops in her readings of Kant and Socrates.

Yet, as Serena Parekh argues in this sympathetic examination of Arendt’s political philosophy: Arendt’s concern with our ability to guarantee human dignity was a lifelong preoccupation, one that is reflected in many of her works. 2 Arendt’s thinking on the question of the basis of human rights grew out of her personal experience as a refugee fleeing Nazi oppression. Born in Hanover to a German-Jewish family, Arendt was superbly trained in German phenomenology.

Parekh finds a foundation for human rights in individual conscience .

Parekh finds a foundation for human rights in individual conscience, drawing on Arendt’s later work on morality, thinking, and judgment. Arendt understood morality primarily as a relation to one’s own self, and conscience represents a limit on what one may do, based on what one is willing to live with internally. Conscience is not simply arbitrary preference, but is grounded in the act of judging. What makes Parekh’s book unique is her sustained focus on Arendt’s philosophical background in phenomenology.
