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

14 editions published in 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 1,546 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"This second volume of Eric Voegelin's miscellaneous papers contains unpublished writings from the time of his forced emigration from Austria in 1938 until his death in 1985.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.

The theory of governance and other miscellaneous papers, 1921- 1938 by Eric Voegelin( )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,481 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( )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,412 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

Selected correspondence 1950-1984 by Eric Voegelin( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This second volume of letters written by Eric Voegelin covers the period from 1950 through 1984. With few exceptions, the originals are to be found in the Hoover Institution Archives at Stanford University. Correspondents include Leo Strauss, Karl Lowith, Alfred Schutz, Aaron Gurwitsch, Hans Kelsen, Marshall McLuhan, Bertrand de Jouvenel, Arnold Toynbee, and Marie Konig, among others. Beginning at a time when Voegelin was working on a major theoretical breakthrough, reflected in the Walgreen Lectures at the University of Chicago and The New Science of Politics, the correspondence highlights the years of publication of the first four volumes of Order and History; Voegelin's move to Munich, where he founded and directed the university's Institut fur Politische Wissenschaft; and his years as Henry Salvatori Distinguished Fellow at the Hoover Institution in Stanford from 1969 to 1974. Voegelin remained a tireless correspondent until the last years of his life. Voegelin's Munich years, while not without controversy, can be seen as the most successful time in his life, as well as his most creative and prolific as a political philosopher. During that time, Voegelin worked on volume IV of Order and History, and the letters written to successive directors of the Louisiana State University Press, as well as to friends and colleagues, give a vivid account of the changing nature of this seminal project. Voegelin's letters written between 1969 and 1984 provide compelling evidence of the intellectual vigor that characterized his work throughout his life and continued virtually undiminished until the last weeks before his death. Voegelin's realism, his sharp wit, and his superbly developed sense of irony remain evident in the correspondence throughout all these years. While letters to Leo Strauss, Robert Heilman, and Alfred Schutz have been published in separate volumes of correspondence, this selection adds an abundance of hitherto unpublished letters, many of them translated from the original German, providing for the first time the outlines of an intellectual biography of one of the most profound thinkers of the twentieth century. Any reader with a serious interest in Voegelin's work will find that the freshness and vitality of his thought are perhaps nowhere more evident than in the letters collected here. As a letter writer, Voegelin always challenged his counterparts, and he is bound to challenge the reader of this correspondence."--Publisher's website
