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

34 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and held by 1,808 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
Republicanism, religion, and the soul of America by Ellis Sandoz( )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 1,754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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( )

15 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,689 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
The politics of truth and other untimely essays : the crisis of civic consciousness by Ellis Sandoz( )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2019 in English and held by 1,686 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

Published essays : 1940-1952 by Eric Voegelin( )

15 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published Essays, 1940-1952, includes some of Eric Voegelin's most provocative and interesting essays. Containing his first publications after he fled Vienna and settled in the United States following Hitler's annexation of Austria, this volume provides eyewitness commentary on the rise of National Socialism from the first days of World War II onward. A major study entitled "Growth of the Race Idea" presents a masterful summary of the two volumes on that subject Voegelin first published in 1933. A related essay of wide interest is entitled "Nietzsche, the Crisis, and the War." Another facet of Voegelin's thought incorporated within this volume of the Essays is his extraordinary analysis of the diplomatic correspondence conducted between the Western powers, the papacy, and the Great Khans, whose breathtaking expansion of the Mongol Empire for a time threatened to extinguish Western civilization itself and resulted in a two-century domination of Russia. Another major study is "The Origins of Scientism," an illuminating analysis of the grounds of much of modern philosophy and of all modern political ideologies. There are also surveys of the state of political theory in the late forties, penetrating studies of utopian thought with essays on Thomas More and Goethe, and a concluding essay that explores the intricacies of "Gnostic Politics"—a familiar theme from Voegelin's contemporaneous New Science of Politics. This volume of published essays shows Eric Voegelin at his most accessible best."--Publishers website

Political apocalypse; a study of Dostoevsky's grand inquisitor by Ellis Sandoz( Book )

13 editions published between 1971 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Ellis Sandoz gives an account of Dostoevsky's "Legend of the Grand Inquisitor." Sandoz pulls apart the Legend, giving it context and meaning in relation to The Brothers Karamazov, the novel in which the Legend appears, and to history. Sandoz's sense for the author's intent is interwoven with Dostoevsky's own correspondence and a comprehensive exploration of the political, theological, and philosophical atmosphere of pre-revolutionary Russia."--Jacket

A government of laws : political theory, religion, and the American founding by Ellis Sandoz( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2001 in English and Italian and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ellis Sandoz reevaluates the traditional understanding of the philosophic and intellectual background of the American founding in light of an exhaustive assessment of Renaissance, medieval, and ancient political philosophy. He shows that the Founding Fathers were consciously and explicitly seeking to create a political order that would meet the demands of human nature and society. Central to Sandoz' analysis is the importance of American religious writings of the eighteenth-century. These often-overlooked documents provide insights into the metaphysics of the American mind and go far in connecting the political thought of the period to its classical and theological sources. "A Government of Laws" is a rigorous and searching analysis of the sources of the political and constitutional theory of the American founding. -- From publisher's description
The Voegelinian revolution : a biographical introduction by Ellis Sandoz( Book )

22 editions published between 1981 and 2018 in English and held by 590 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
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 576 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

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Order and history by Eric Voegelin( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 189 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
