The article analyzes Arendt's controversial notion of 'the social question' in order to account for her way of discussing the realm of needs and the body. By criticizing Judith Butler's restrictive reading of Arendt's separation between the public and the private I argue that Arendt does not perform, in her work, a "disavowal of dependency" as Butler claims. Rather, her notion of political actor and political interdependence in action offers an original and yet unexplored dimension of dependency and precarity that are not linked to the sphere of needs but rather to the sphere of politics and therefore to that of 'the human'

Abstract

The article analyzes Arendt's controversial notion of 'the social question' in order to account for her way of discussing the realm of needs and the body. By criticizing Judith Butler's restrictive reading of Arendt's separation between the public and the private I argue that Arendt does not perform, in her work, a "disavowal of dependency" as Butler claims. Rather, her notion of political actor and political interdependence in action offers an original and yet unexplored dimension of dependency and precarity that are not linked to the sphere of needs but rather to the sphere of politics and therefore to that of 'the human'
