The drama of humanity and other miscellaneous papers, 1939-1985 by Eric Voegelin( )

13 editions published in 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 1,542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This second volume of Eric Voegelin's miscellaneous papers contains unpublished writings from the time of his forced emigration from Austria in 1938 until his death in 1985. The volume's focus is on dialogue and discussion, presenting Voegelin in the role of lecturer, discussant, and respondent. "The Drama of Humanity" presents the Walter Turner Candler Lectures delivered in four parts at Emory University in 1967. This text, a small book in itself, addresses the themes of "The Contemporary Situation," "Man in the Cosmos," "The Epiphany of Man," and "Man in Revolt," providing the reader with a good introduction to Voegelin's later work." "Another extensive text included in this volume is "Conversations with Eric Voegelin at the Thomas More Institute" in Montreal. These exchanges include lectures and discussions given by Voegelin between 1967 and 1976. A number of other sections offer insight into Voegelin's intellectual development over a period of forty years. These include the complete "Foreword" to the second edition of The Political Religions, which is published here for the first time; "Notes on T. S. Eliot's Four Quartets"; the "Cycle Theory and Disintegrations"; "What Is Political Theory?"; "The Spiritual and Political Future of the Western World"; "Notes on 'Civilization and Foreign Affairs'"; "Structures of Consciousness"; "The Beyond and Its Parousia"; and the 1983 "Responses at the Panel Discussion of 'The Beginning of the Beginning.'"" "Several lengthy excerpts from conference dialogues with other scholars are also included: "The West and the Meaning of Industrial Society," "Natural Law in Political Theory," and "Man in Political Institutions." Volume 33 concludes with Voegelin's "Autobiographical Statement at the Age of Eighty-Two," his last public utterance on the course of his life and his life's work. By choosing dialogue as the focus of this volume, Petropulos and Weiss are able to show not only the extent to which Voegelin engaged in an exchange of ideas but also his abiding concern for the practical and theoretical conditions necessary in order for this exchange to take place.

European Union discourses on un/employment : an interdisciplinary approach to employment, policy-making and organizational change by Peter Muntigl( )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Employment is clearly one of those fields of political activity that reveal the manifold problems and difficulties accompanying the process of European integration and supranational institutionalization. In particular the conflict between supranationalists and intergovernmentalists and the degree to which member states show willingness to cooperate with each other become manifest. The Union is struggling for new employment policies that should, on the one hand, be compatible with the European model of the welfare state, and, on the other, adopt to new economic constraints. These debates are ac
The theory of governance and other miscellaneous papers, 1921- 1938 by Eric Voegelin( )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first of two volumes of Voegelin's miscellaneous papers brings together crucial writings, published for the first time, from the early, formative period of this scholar's thought. The book begins with Voegelin's dissertation on sociological method, completed under the direction of Othmar Spann and Hans Kelsen at the University of Vienna in 1922. It reveals an intimate knowledge of the writings of Georg Simmel and a skillful use of insights gained from Edmund Husserl's Logical Investigations and Ideas. The dissertation, and other smaller pieces written at this time, addresses problems that remained of great importance to Voegelin throughout his life: the relation of insight to language, the structure of the human being, and the human's spiritual center. They disclose both Voegelin's theoretical reference points during these early years, including the thought of Henri Bergson, Othmar Spann, Georg Simmel, and Edmund Husserl, as well the young scholar's remarkably independent approach to theoretical problems. Moreover, this volume includes a work that is fundamental to an understanding of Voegelin's theoretical development: his extended study on the "theory of governance," written between 1930 and 1932. It follows the issues that confront political society to their roots in the soul and in the soul's relationship to the ground of being. The Theory of Governance and Other Miscellaneous Papers presents a meditative-exegetic study of texts from Augustine, Descartes, and Husserl, early examples of the meditations that became central to Voegelin's later work. Other essays included in this volume such as "Theory of Law" and "Political Theory as Human Science" develop these theoretical insights and refine Voegelin's methodological tools. This volume will be of interest to all scholars of the work of Eric Voegelin and of the refoundation of political philosophy in the twentieth century in general."--Publishers website
A friendship that lasted a lifetime : the correspondence between Alfred Schütz and Eric Voegelin by Alfred Schutz( )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,415 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

Hitler and the Germans by Eric Voegelin( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation Between 1933 & 1938, Eric Voegelin published four books that expressly stated his opposition to the increasingly powerful Hitler regime. As a result, he was forced to leave his homeland in 1938. Twenty years later, he returned to Germany as a professor of political science at Ludwig-Maximilian University. Voegelin's homecoming allowed him the opportunity to voice once again his opinions on the Nazi regime & its aftermath. In 1964 at the University of Munich, Voegelin gave a series of memorable lectures on what he considered "the central German experiential problem" of his time: Adolf Hitler's rise to power, the reasons for it, & its consequences for post-Nazi Germany. For Voegelin, these questions demanded a scrutiny of the mentality of individual Germans & of the order of German society during & after the Nazi period. Hitler & the Germans, published here for the first time, offers Voegelin's most extensive & detailed critique of the Hitler era. Voegelin interprets this era in terms of the basic diagnostic tools provided by the philosophy of Plato & Aristotle, Judeo-Christian culture, & contemporary German-language writers like Heimito von Doderer, Karl Kraus, Thomas Mann, & Robert Musil. His inquiry uncovers a historiography that was substantially unhistoric: a German Evangelical Church that misinterpreted the Gospel, a German Catholic Church that denied universal humanity, & a legal process enmeshed in criminal homicide. Hitler & the Germans provides a profound alternative approach to the topic of the individual German's entanglement in the Hitler regime & its continuing implications. This comprehensive reading of the Nazi period has yet to be matched
