The Roots of liberty : Magna Carta, ancient constitution, and the Anglo-American tradition of rule of law( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this important contribution to the ongoing debate over the origins of constitutionalism and the American republic, Ellis Sandoz brings together the eminent scholars J. C. Holt, Christopher W. Brooks, Paul Christianson, and John Phillip Reid to present a powerful re-evaluation of the place of Magna Carta and the ancient constitution in the tradition of Anglo-American liberty and rule of law."--BOOK JACKET. "In stark contrast to the Bernard Bailyn-Gordon Wood school of interpretation, which stresses the essentially fungible and evanescent nature of liberty, The Roots of Liberty argues for a far more ancient and substantive paternity. The authors present compelling evidence that our modern-day understanding of liberty under law, commonly traced to seventeenth-century English and eighteenth-century American roots, can in fact be traced back to the depths of English constitutional and political history."--BOOK JACKET. "The book establishes the place of Magna Carta and the ancient constitution in forming the fabric of law and government from the thirteenth century onward. The essays deal with early medieval developments, with the common law mind of the sixteenth century under the Tudor monarchs, with the struggle for power and authority between the Stuart kings and parliament in the seventeenth century, and with the role of the ancient constitution in the momentous legal and constitutional debates that occurred between the Glorious Revolution and the American Declaration of Independence. Sandoz's Introduction presents in detail Sir John Fortescue's vision of the Lancastrian constitution as it was revived by Sir Edward Coke two centuries later to become the centerpiece modern and rule of law. Sandoz also places each of the essays into the context of the historiographic debate occasioned by publication of J. G. A. Pocock's The Ancient Constitution and the Feudal Law over three decades ago. Corinne C. Weston's spirited Epilogue evaluates the contributors' arguments and, by way of conclusion, offers its own perspective on the importance of the roots of liberty and origins of rule of law in the Anglo-American tradition."--BOOK JACKET. "The Roots of Liberty is a valuable addition to our contemporary understanding of the origins and texture of the republican synthesis. For students and scholars of law, history, philosophy, and political science, it is a major contribution to the intellectual history of liberty."--BOOK JACKET
Autobiographical reflections by Eric Voegelin( Book )

The Voegelinian revolution : a biographical introduction by Ellis Sandoz( Book )

18 editions published between 1981 and 2017 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the course of the twentieth century, Eric Voegelin produced a demanding body of writing on the philosophy of history and the history of political theory since antiquity. This is the first full-scale treatment of his inquiry into the reality of man's political existence. It includes close readings of the texts, with Voegelin's own comments on them interspersed, offering a thorough explication of the philosopher's quest." "Incorporating an "Autobiographical Memoir" prepared in collaboration with Voegelin especially for the volume, Ellis Sandoz interweaves the events of this great thinker's life with the philosophical inquiry to which that life has been devoted. Among the uniquely engaging biographical subjects covered are Voegelin's reminiscences of his involvement with such seminal minds as Max Weber, and with Karl Kraus, Hans Kelsen, and other lights of Vienna's intellectual community of the 1920s and 1930s; a full discussion of his early responses to national socialism and his escape from the Anschluss in 1938; and a summary of his early years in America, with particular attention to the years at Louisiana State University with Cleanth Brooks, Robert Penn Warren, and Robert Heilman." "The Voegelinian Revolution shows anyone interested in politics and human affairs how to follow Voegelin's path. This book will be of interest to historians, political theorists, students of philosophy and religion, and educated readers concerned about the plight of American/Western civilization and looking for a new view on our current "crisis.""--Jacket

Political sermons of the American founding era, 1730-1805 by Ellis Sandoz( Book )

23 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The early political culture of the American republic was deeply influenced by the religious consciousness of the New England preachers. Indeed, it was often through the political sermon--the "pulpit of the American Revolution"--That the political rhetoric of the period was formed, refined, and transmitted. And yet the centrality of religious concerns in the lives of eighteenth-century Americans is largely neglected. This has created a blind spot regarding the fundamental acts of the American founding. Political sermons such as the fifty-five collected in this volume are unique to America, both in kind and in significance. This volume thus fills an important need if the American founding period is to be adequately understood

The politics of truth and other untimely essays : the crisis of civic consciousness by Ellis Sandoz( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Politics of Truth and Other Untimely Essays explores the historical and theoretical underpinnings of personal liberty and free government and provides a trenchant analysis of the crisis of civic consciousness endangering both of them today. The book addresses a range of issues in contemporary political philosophy and constitutional theory. These are seen to be all the more urgent in importance because of the surging aspirations for liberty in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet empire and the post-Cold War anomaly of crisis, malaise, and disarray in free government itself in America and in other bastions of modern democracy
Republicanism, religion, and the soul of America by Ellis Sandoz( Book )

"Explores the role of Christianity, including John Wesley and the Great Awakening revival, in the formation of the American Republic; also considers Eric Voegelin's contributions to the philosophy of religious experience. Argues that modern republicanism grounds human dignity in spiritual individualism, thereby generating democratic agency for self-government under divine Providence"--Provided by publisher

Published essays, 1953-1965 by Eric Voegelin( Book )

13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 181 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

Published essays, 1929-1933 by Eric Voegelin( )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This volume of The Collected Works contains essays published by Eric Voegelin between 1929 and 1933, the period between the publication of his first book, On the Form of the American Mind, and Hitler's rise to power, as well as Voegelin's two books analyzing the explosive race issues posed by National Socialism. The essays herein reflect the intellectual and political tumult of the period and their author's maturing grasp of political reality as he moved away from positivism and Kelsen's "Pure Theory of Law" toward a more refined and open philosophical stance. The heart of this shift is signaled by his emphasis on philosophical anthropology and on the decisive importance of the moral substance basic to political communities." "The topics of the essays are grouped around major themes in sociological theory, political science, and the theory of law. They illuminate the theoretical and practical impact of Voegelin's experiences in America as he increasingly engages European theories of state, especially the social theories of leading French and German scholars. In content, these essays include such pragmatic concerns as American theories of property, economic transactions, due process of law, and Austrian constitutional reforms."--BOOK JACKET
History of political ideas new order & last orientation by Eric Voegelin( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The New Order and Last Orientation, Eric Voegelin explores two distinctly different yet equally important aspects of modernity. He begins by offering a vivid account of the political situation in seventeenth-century Europe after the decline of the church and the passing of the empire. Voegelin shows how the intellectual and political disorder of the period was met by such seemingly disparate responses as Grotius's theory of natural right, Hobbes's Leviathan, the role of the Fronde in the formation of the French national state, Spinoza's Tractatus Theologico-Politicus, and Locke's Second Treatise, the blueprint of a modern middle-class society. By putting these responses and the thought of Montesquieu, Hume, and others in the context of the birth pains of the national state and the emergence of a new self-understanding of man, Voegelin achieves a brilliant mixture of political history and profound philosophical analysis. Voegelin's verdict of modernity is pronounced most powerfully in the opening part of "Last Orientation," in the chapter entitled "Phenomenalism." His discussion of the intellectual confusion underlying the modern project of scientistic phenomenalism is the most original criticism leveled against modernity to date. It is at the same time the first step toward a recovery of reality through philosophy conceived as a science of substance in the spirit of Giordano Bruno. Voegelin's first example of such an effort at recovering reality is the chapter on Schelling, one of the spiritual realists who has not been affected by the prevailing rationalist or reductionist creeds that are part of the modern disorder. Schelling's indirect yet powerful influence on Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, and Freud more than justifies Voegelin's interest in his philosophy and character, even though Voegelin would later distance himself from some of Schelling's positions. The volume's concluding chapter, "Nietzsche and Pascal," applies the understanding gained from the study of Schelling to the thought of the most powerful critic of the age, Nietzsche. Nietzsche's self-avowed affinity with Pascal provides the key to an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of his thought and reaffirms the connection that links the beginning of modernity with its most recent crises and the efforts to overcome them
