Ханна Арендт и Карл Шмитт: два понятия политического.
The article analyzes the similarities and differences in the understanding of the political by Hannah Arendt and Carl Schmitt, drawing parallels to their personal destinies. According to the author, the differences in interpretation of the essence of the political by Arendt and Schmitt are sometimes funadmental. While for Schmitt there is no place for the political within the state, it exists only in its external actions, for Arendt, on the contrary, only through participation in the inner political life a human being becomes free, rises above the basic need to sustain life, goes beyond the relations of domination and slavery. Having considered the idea of Arendt in her work "On Revolution", the author concludes that where the political begins for Arendt, it ends for Schmitt, and vice versa.
