Harry Potter and Hanah Arendt?

Leave it to the folks at Reason to connect a pop culture phenomenon to a serious philosophical issue. In their defense, Julian Sanchez does a great job illuminating how Order of the Phoenix reflects the banality of evil – a concept and term coined by Hanah Arendt.

Despite, or perhaps because of, his unique starting point Sanchez provides a insightful glimpse into the latest Harry Potter book. Should provide food for thought for our Blog Book Club selection. I will post my review next week.
