THE VISIONARIES Arendt, Beauvoir, Rand, Weil, and the Power of Philosophy in Dark Times

by | Read by Hannah Curtis

History • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Hannah Curtis narrates accounts of the lives of Simone de Beauvoir, Hannah Arendt, Simone Weil, and Ayn Rand, who, among others, helped to lay much of the intellectual framework for the post-WWII Western world during the decade before that war. Their lives were often something of a hot mess and could be dramatic, but we probably wouldn't expect it to be any other way. Curtis's British accent gives an air of authority to this work, and she is appropriately expressive throughout. She narrates at a pace that is easy to understand, making this a welcome production for those interested in philosophy and intellectual history.
