This work connects two central texts by Hannah Arendt: The Human Condition and Thinking, volume one of The Life of the Mind. My approach will be to examine the rise of "the social" as outlined in The Human Condition, followed by a consideration of Arendt's response to this rise in Thinking. In doing so we will observe that both action and thought are grounded in the human condition of plurality.
