Abstract: The method of political thought of Hannah Arendt is quite heterodox and multiform. Any attempt to interpret it is faced with great difficulties, especially if we consider that Arendt left little information that could clarify it. However, it may be possible to circumvent these difficulties hermeneutics, insofar as we select the prospects of the method of Arendt to be developed, be carried away and silencing others – which is already part of the game of appearances. It is thus a kind of puzzle that can be mounted in different ways, without being exhausted its possibilities. Even because, besides questioning the systematic structure of the traditional philosophical thought, Arendt did not intend to give a definite shape to his thought, always leaving room for future changes. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to understand the method or methods, the political thought of Hannah Arendt from Hylomorphic approach. So, we developed four chapters, which will be addressed in different perspectives of the method Arendt, but always directed to the spectrum of matter and the way it projected in its procedures. The first chapter treats of the genealogy of totalitarian ways of thinking, such as how to engage and fight against Arendt’s totalitarian systems. The second chapter will deal with the propositional aspects of Arendt’s thought, setting on the core concepts that compose his political theory. The third chapter investigates the role of the Will while encouraging political action, showing how Arendt made the passage of the philosophy of the Will to freedom of the political action. The fourth chapter will deal with Hylomorphic connections in the relationship between the faculties of thinking and judging. Finally, perhaps the methodological procedures of Arendt cannot be seen as the beginning of the philosophy of freedom?
