This essay elaborates on Hannah Arendt’s until recently unpublished essay The Freedom to Be Free: the Conditions and Meaning of Revolution (dated 1966-1967 and now included in the volume Thinking Without a Banister. Essays in Understanding 1954-1975, New York 2018). My claim is that in this essay Arendt partially reconsiders her theory of revolutions by amending her controversial position as regards the so-called “social question”, by criticizing more explicitly the traditional link between revolution and violence, by establishing a clearer nexus between revolution and natality. This essay re-defines revolutions as autonomous political beginnings, and in so doing offers another version of her notion of the vita activa as circular dimension, one that has its end in itself.
