The Human Condition with Fred Dewey

On the 7th, 14th and 21st of May 11am – 2pm at The Field

We will be reading Hannah Arendt’s The Human Condition with LA activist and writer Fred Dewey. Fred has organised several readings of this book, often alongside the organisation of the neighbourhood council movement in LA. The first Saturday we will read section 4 to 7 of chapter II looking at ‘the private and public’. We will define what we read as we go along, discuss ideas to develop, and work through our differences. Last year Fred presented at The Field his book The School of Public Life (, triggering an inspiring discussion (summarized in the “toolbox” page of the new cross commoners website). This reading is also a continuation of that discussion.
