Abstract

This paper constitutes an attempt at analyzing the phenomenon of post-truth from the perspective of the political thought of Hannah Arendt. It discusses the hypothesis: the problem of post-truth in politics had been described by Arendt before the term “post-truth” appeared. The applied methodology consists of the analysis of source texts inspired by hermeneutics, history of ideas and Arendtian narrative on politics.
