Modernity without Restraint: The Political Religions, the New Science of Politics, and Science, Politics, and Gnosticism

Synopsis

Published together for the first time in one volume are three works written during different historical circumstances between 1938 and 1958; yet all share the theme that modern Western civilization has lost its spiritual foundations. Editor Henningsen (political science, U. of Hawaii-Manoa) explores the background that motivated Voegelin's theoretical analyses and the new relevance that his work has gained in recent years with the collapse of state socialism in East Germany, Eastern Europe, and the Soviet Union.
