Arendt wrote the essay in German, and William Barrett translated it into
English, rendering all the quotations in the text without reference to
existing translations. In our annotations, we present the quotations according
to standard English translations and provide references to the German
originals. Two of the books that play an important role in this essay, however,
have not been translated into English: Schelling’s Philosophie der Mythologie
and Karl Jaspers’ Psychologie der Weltanschauungen. Quotations from
these works are referenced to the German editions.
