The new science of politics, an introduction by Eric Voegelin( Book )

84 editions published between 1952 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 1,556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considerado, junto con Carl Schmitt, uno de los representantes más influyentes de la teología política, Eric Voegelin dio forma acabada a su pensamiento en la escritura de su obra La nueva ciencia de la política. Con la intención de poner en evidencia lo que consideraba influencias gnósticas defectuosas en la ciencia -y apoyandose tanto en autores cristianos clásicos como en las obras de Hans Urs von Balthasar, Henri de Lubac o Hans Jonas- Voegelin detecta un importante número de similitudes entre el gnosticismo antiguo y cietas teorías políticas modernas e identica la raíz
Order and history by Eric Voegelin( Book )

11 editions published between 1989 and 2000 in English and held by 1,521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Search of Order brings to a conclusion Eric Voegelin's masterwork, Order and History. Voegelin conceived Order and History as "a philosophical inquiry concerning the principal types of order of human existence in society and history as well as the corresponding symbolic forms." In previous volumes, Voegelin discussed the imperial organizations of the ancient Near East and their existence in the form of the cosmological myth; the revelatory form of existence in history, developed by Moses and the prophets of the Chosen People; the polis, the Hellenic myth, and the development of philosophy as the symbolism of order; and the evolution of the great religions, especially Christianity. This final volume of Order and History is devoted to the elucidation of the experience of transcendence that Voegelin discussed in earlier volumes. He aspires to show in a theoretically acute manner the exact nature of transcendental experiences. Voegelin's philosophical inquiry unfolds in the historical context of the great symbolic enterprise of restating man's humanity under the horizon of the modern sciences and in resistance to the manifold forces of our age that deform human existence. His stature as one of the major philosophical forces of the twentieth century clearly emerges from these concluding pages. In Search of Order deepens and clarifies the meditative movement that Voegelin, now in reflective distance to his own work, sees as having been operative throughout his search. Because of Voegelin's death, on January 19, 1985, In Search of Order is briefer than it otherwise might have been; however, the theoretical presentation that he had set for himself is essentially completed here. Just as this volume serves Voegelin well in his striking analyses of Hegel, Hesiod, and Plato, it will serve as a model for the reader's own efforts in search of order

Annotation The penultimate volume in Voegelin's (1901-85) study of how human and divine order are intertwined and manifested in history, originally published from 1956 to 1987 by Louisiana State University Press. Volume Four, published in 1974, treats history not as a stream of human beings and their actions in time, but as the process of human participation in a flux of divine presence that has eschatological direction.

Eric Voegelin's dialogue with the postmoderns : searching for foundations by Peter A Petrakis( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essay endeavors to generate a dialogue between Eric Voegelin and other prominent twentieth-century thinkers and explore some of the more perplexing issues in contemporary political theory. Each essay rests on the underlying question: is it possible or desirable to construct or discover political foundations without resorting to metaphysical or essentialist constructs? The introduction focuses on the two nineteenth-century thinkers, Nietzsche and Husserl, who have framed the debate about modernity and postmodernity; thereafter, the book examines Voegelin's ideas as compared to those of other twentieth-century thinkers."--BOOK JACKET.

Robert B. Heilman and Eric Voegelin : a friendship in letters, 1944-1984 by Robert Bechtold Heilman( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Heilman and Voegelin first became acquainted around 1941, when Voegelin delivered a guest lecture for the political science department at Louisiana State University. At that time, Heilman was teaching in the English department at LSU along with Robert Penn Warren and Cleanth Brooks. What began as simple exchanges after Voegelin moved to LSU soon grew into full-fledged correspondence - beginning with an eight-page letter by Voegelin commenting on Heilman's manuscript on Shakespeare's King Lear. Their correspondence lasted until four months before Voegelin's death in January 1985."

14 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This period covered by the material published in this volume marks the transition in Eric Voegelin's career from Louisiana to Munich. After twenty years in the United States, in 1958 Voegelin accepted an invitation to fill the political science chair at Ludwig Maximilian University, a position left vacant throughout the Nazi period and last occupied by the famous Max Weber, who had died in 1920." "The themes most prominent in the fourteen items reprinted here reflect the concerns of a transition, not only in a scholar's career, and in the momentous shifts in world politics taking place around him, but also in the development of his understanding of the stratification of reality and the attendant demands for a science of human affairs adequate to the challenges posed by the persistent crisis of the West in its latest configurations and by contemporary philosophy." "Several of the items herein originated as talks to a specific organization on problems facing German democratization and the development of a market economy amid the ruins of a fragmented culture and infrastructure in a society without historically evolved institutional supports for a satisfactory social and political order. Accordingly, pragmatic matters occupy a central place in a number of these pieces, especially the overriding question of how Germany could move from an illiberal and ideological political order into a modern liberal democratic one."--Jacket

Selected book reviews by Eric Voegelin( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the course of his varied and distinguished academic life, Eric Voegelin was often called upon by review editors of scholarly journals as well as by editors in the popular press to examine, summarize, and critically assess the work of other scholars, of statesmen, and of men of affairs. The contents of the books Voegelin reviewed mirror his changing interests over the years, including questions of method, points of legal philosophy and jurisprudence, and issues of race, war, and the aftermath of war. Of course, he was frequently called upon as well to review standard texts and new editions and monographs across the full range of political science. This collection of Voegelin's reviews amounts to a reflection in miniature of many of the problems Voegelin tackled in his essays, articles, and books from the 1920s until the 1950s, when, owing to the press of other business, he began to decline requests to review the work of others. Some of his reviews are little more than clinical summaries; others are analytic essays. A few are extended engagements with a text or a set of problems. Occasionally, particularly among the later reviews originally written in English, one finds flashes of Voegelin's legendary wit and a restrained impatience with the inadequate approaches or sheer incompetence of others. These book reviews will be of interest to all students and scholars of Eric Voegelin's work

A friendship that lasted a lifetime : the correspondence between Alfred Schütz and Eric Voegelin by Alfred Schutz( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scholarly correspondence can be as insightful as scholarly work itself, as it often documents the motivating forces of its writers' intellectual ideas while illuminating their lives more clearly. The more complex the authors' scholarly works and the more troubled the eras in which they lived, the more substantial, and potentially fascinating, their correspondence. This is especially true of the letters between Alfred Schutz (1899-1959) and Eric Voegelin (1901-1985). The scholars lived in incredibly dramatic times and produced profound, complex works that continue to confound academics. The communication between these two giants of the social sciences, as they sent their thoughts to one another, was crucial to the work of both men
