The writing of this paper take the meaning of People and the significance of political problem as the starting point to enquire political thought of Hannah Arendt.People’s ability of political practice is always always the judgment standard of Classical politic, this practice is a kind of moral action and speech. Only in this sense, a man is a complete man with his own quality and the meaning as a man.The instrumentalizing of politic in the modern process which made the meaning of human disappear has also dispeled the morality of human, neither the utilitarian purpose (utility) theory nor the moral imperative exist outside people can save people’s meaningless. Arendt tries to approach to the study of the distinction between political phenomenology of human existence form and the human existence space phenomenon to provide solutions to the problem of people’s meaningless:human’s meaning derived from his actions and speech, their realization needs the existence of public space. Arendt’s action and public space theory is stressed in the plurality and association of human, that is to say,the otherness is the condition of human existence and the freedom of action is the antecedent of the realization of human meaning. Anyone who is lonely or be ruled is unable to get all of the dignity of people, thus Arendt accomplished the critic to totalitarian as the main feature of modern politic and the theoretical reconstruction.This paper writing to text research primarily, by comparative research is secondary.lt is based on heckling and elucidating the text and concepts of the of arendt’s political thoughts to understand it. First, to understand the political thoughts of Arendt depend on the understanding of heidegger’s existentialism and even the whole German romanticism; Meanwhile, the development of her ideas influenced deeply by the conmunicate philosophy of her teacher jaspers and Kant’s philosophy, we only have to get all these content uhnderstanded can truly realize arendt’s political thought. So, the first part of this paper is briefly introduce the theory of three thinkers from the view of arendt political thought; The second part shows the critic of current politics and traditional political philosophy and modern history concept.The key factors of shifting Arendt’s research from politic to philosophy is her profound experience of the crisis of real politics, national decline and totalitarian produce, public appearance and personal loss of modern political crisis is her grasp of modern politic.Based on the analysis of the real politics, ahrendt traced the source of the crisis back to the confrontation between ancient political and philosophy and the "history of modern" process. The third part is mainly through the elucidation of Human Condition to investigate the notion of arendt’s political thought in the action theory and public space theory. The fourth part presents the author’s reflection on arendt’s political thought. Though Arendt’s political thought is inspiring, the relation between theory and reality is powerless, the author thinks that the reflection of classical political theory in her way has aesthetic tendency in any case,it can not make practical considerations to reality.
