Hannah Arendt on Alienation - Dictionary of Arguments
Brocker I 356
Alienation/Arendt: According to Arendt, the origin of world alienation in thought lies at the beginning of modernism. The Frenchman René Descartes had philosophically carried out this break by terminating a traditional agreement according to which the human is part of the cosmos and not his ruler. Descartes, from a position of universal doubt, has classified the world as a product of the imagining mind. In so doing, he had broken with the relationship between the human and the environment: the "world" had from then on been regarded as an object of human activity.
