Hannah Arendt (1906-1975) is known as one of the "most influential political theorists of the 20th century"; Karl Jaspers (1883-1969), a psychiatrist and philosopher, is "often viewed as a major exponent of existentialism in Germany" (n.b., quotes from Wiki).

This volume documents their correspondence over several decades, which, since neither had anticipated such being published, "show not only the way both philosophers, lived, thought, and worked but also how they experienced the postwar years....they reveal themselves here - for the first time - in a personal and spontaneous way" (n.b., quote from jacket flap).
