About this product
- DescriptionThirty-five years ago few could have predicted that <i>The New Science of Politics</i> would be a best-seller by political theory standards. Compressed within the Draconian ecomy of the six Walgreen lectures is a complete theory of man, society, and history, presented at the most profound and intellectual level. . . . Voegelin's [work] stands out in bold relief from much of what has passed under the name of political science in recent decades. . . . The New Science is aptly titled, for Voegelin makes clear at the outset that a 'return to the specific content' of premodern political theory is out of the question. . . . The subtitle of the book, An Introduction, clearly indicates that The New Science of Politics is an invitation to join the search for the recovery of our full humanity. --From the new Foreword by Dante Germi This book must be considered one of the most enlightening essays on the character of European politics that has appeared in half a century. . . . This is a book powerful and vivid eugh to make agreement or disagreement with even its main thesis relatively unimportant. --<i>Times Literary Supplement </i> Voegelin . . . is one of the most distinguished interpreters to Americans of the n-liberal streams of European thought. . . . He brings a remarkable breadth of kwledge, and a historical imagination that ranges frequently into brilliant insights and generalizations. --Francis G. Wilson, <i>American Political Science Review </i> This book is beautifully constructed . . . his erudition constantly brings a startling illumination. --Martin Wright, <i>International Affairs </i> A ledestar to thinking men who seek a restoration of political science on the classic and Christian basis . . . a significant accomplishment in the retheorization of our age. --Anthony Harrigan, <i>Christian Century </i>
