In this dissertation, we address the topic of mass society in Hannah Arendt¿s philosophy. We aim to reconstruct the elements that, throughout history, have crystallized and shaped themselves as possible historical conditions for the constitution of the mass society based on The Origins of Totalitarianism (1951) and The Human Condition (1958). We also address the characteristics of mass society and the mass man, and we intend to highlight the challenges and obstacles imposed to politics by the development of that society, which was Arendt's concern after the end of the totalitarian regimes. In order to deal with the post-totalitarian mass society, we analyzed the books On Revolution (1963) and Crises of the Republic (1969) (AU)
