Wolin's Description of Arendt's politics is captured nively in the following passage: "For Arendt, as well as for Hediegger, politics is primarily a matter of existential self-affirmation: a terrain of virtuoso performance and individual bravado, a proving grounds for authenticity," and as such "her perspective is irreconcilable with the values of political solidarity that are so essential to the concept of democratic citizenship" (69).
