Brocker I 365
Human/Arendt: Arendt refers to Heidegger: In April 1953 she comments: "Ad Masstab: Heidegger's 'We are the Conditioned' apparently reverses the saying of humans as the measure of all things, in truth it only adds to it. When the human is seen as the measure of things, the question arises: And what is the measure of the human, who cannot be his own measure in the sense of 'measure'? Within a thinking that avoids all transcendence, there is only one answer to this question: "Things are the measure of the human" (1).
Grunenberg: With this she had described the dilemma of political thinking as well as Heidegger's problem of establishing a philosophy of conditionality from an a-theological perspective.
Arendt: In contrast to Heidegger, she emphasises the citizens' capacity for action and creative ability.
