Abstract [en]

This essay discusses the relationship between modernity and revolution from the perspectives of political theorist Hannah Arendt and philosopher Anselm Jappe. The basic argument is that revolution can be understood as accelerated modernity, i.e. that revolutionary situations intensifies paradoxes and contradictions inherent in modernity. In this sense, revolutions both reflect and point beyond modern society.
