I have a strong impression that Habermas views politics as a problem (at least in theory) solvable through rational discussion, while both Arendt and Mouffe see politics as necessarily an arena of conflict, which is not possible to solve. I can't find where I would have read this. Is this just my impression? Can you suggest readings on this?

@jaranta W.r.t. Habermas and Mouffe, yes, not sure about Arendt. From my gut, Arendt is more about collective / communal action, not about conflict. Here is something I recently read: journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.11

@jaranta You're welcome. :) Don't hesitate if you other questions, I'm currently reading a lot on Habermas vs. Mouffe.
