Americanism : revolutionary order and societal self-interpretation in the American Republic by Jürgen Gebhardt( Book )

5 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American Revolution brought a new and vital power to the world and created the political, social, and intellectual conditions that continue to govern the lives of Americans today. Jurgen Gebhardt's Americanism, originally published in German, analyzes the origins of the American public philosophy. Gebhardt uses the term civil theology - which he describes as a belief system grounded in social and religious ideals and based upon the principle "one nation, under God "--To set forth the character of that philosophy. The focus of Gebhardt's study is the relationship between the concepts of founding and order in the self-understanding of the country's early leaders. This focus leads to the core of the symbolic self-interpretation of American society. Through careful scrutiny of the writings of the Founding Fathers - and with a special emphasis on those of John Adams - Gebhardt studies the philosophical and Christian origins of the American ideals of republicanism and revolution. He then considers the process by which the design for living envisaged by the founders embodied in the concept of the paradigmatic republic - found expression in the political, economic, and social institutions of the new society, producing a form of civil theology that was soon identified as Americanism. Americanism raised a universal claim that God, the world, humanity, society, and history all existed within the cosmos of American observances. But in the twentieth century, according to Gebhardt, Americanism has been subverted by the emergence of an individualism unconcerned with pursuit of the common good and by the concomitant rise of an industrialized society at odds with the republic's political-spiritual ethos. Jurgen Gebhardt casts an outsider's keen and observant eye on the structure of the American Republic. Americanism is a first-rate study of the philosophical origins of the American paradigm of order and of how the American quest for a good polity has failed in our time
On the form of the American mind by Eric Voegelin( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Voegelin begins his inquiry into the form of the American mind with a complex discussion of the concepts of time and existence in European and American philosophy and continues with an extended interpretation of George Santayana, a study of the Puritan mystic Jonathan Edwards, a presentation on Anglo-American jurisprudence, and a consideration of the historian, economist, and political scientist John R. Commons. Jurgen Gebhardt and Barry Cooper provide access to this brilliant study with their two-part Introduction. The first part considers On the Form of the American Mind in the context of methodological debates ongoing in Germany at the time Voegelin was writing the book; the second describes Voegelin's American experience and compares his work with similar studies written during the post-World War I period

Ordnung und Geschichte by Eric Voegelin( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in German and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ohne Israel hätte es keine Geschichte gegeben - jedenfalls nicht als eine bewusste retrospektive Deutung vergangener Ereignisse. So lautet die These dieses Teilbandes von Ordnung und Geschichte. Die am Modell einer Entsprechung zwischen Kosmos und Gesellschaft ausgerichteten Symbolismen der altorientalischen Kulturen waren ganz auf Gleichsinnigkeit der sozialen Ordnung mit den großen Zeitrhythmen des Himmels und der Erde angelegt. Im alten Israel hat sich jedoch - wie auf andere Weise auch in Griechenland - ein wesentlicher>Sprung im Sein<ereignet: Moses Begegnung mit Gott am Dornbusch und der Exodus aus Ägypten bedeuten eine neue Qualität im Verhältnis von Ordnung und Geschichte. Erstmals kommt es zu einer bewussten Verortung der menschlichen Existenz vor dem weltüberlegenen Gott. Dieser grundlegende Übergang führt zu einer zeitlichen Einteilung in Vorher und Nachher und zur Geburt von>Geschichte als Existenzform<einer Gesellschaft
