Overview
In 1958, Arendt, in her The Human Condition, argued, supposedly, that we have become mechanical creatures as a result of scientism; according to which we have been content to pass our time in mere “labor”, with an emphasis on the satisfaction of “biological” needs and the consumption of goods. Building on Aristotle, who located "life" (existence meaning) in the social and political world, intermixed with views by Friedrich Nietzsche, she pushed out the ideas that we take “action” when we submit our views to public scrutiny and engage others in philosophical conversation, and that this is also associated with what she called “natality” or the ever-present possibility of new beginnings.

Education
Arendt was the pupil of Martin Heidegger, who from she learned Nietzschean existentialism views.
