your citations need to be very specific, but unfortunately, as the reading is not continuous page by page, To solve this problem, first number the paragraphs in each chapter in your copy so that each paragraph is easy to find by number, the first paragraph in each chapter being paragraph 1 of that chapter. Then, to cite a place in the book, indicate the chapter number as a Roman numeral, followed by the paragraph number, separated by a colon. For example, if you use paragraph 16 from chapter VII, your in-text citation should look like this: (VII:16). Make sure that you number the paragraphs correctly.
Here are the Number of paragraphs in each chapter assigned from Arendt’s book:
I = 19 paragraphs.
VI = 33 paragraphs.
Ep = 34 paragraphs.
Post = 36 paragraphs
