Additional Information

Hannah Arendt identified three effects of solitude – conscience, thought and creativity. But isolation, a product of social distancing, does not equate to solitude. The undesirable effects of isolation, a political experience of separation from others, and loneliness, a personal experience, can, in Arendt’s thinking, be ameliorated by solitude. In this time of social distancing, are we able to experience solitude, to enhance creativity, deepen conscience and thought? Or has the hyperfocus on productivity of the modern organisation been outsourced to our domestic spaces?
