Authors/Editors

Eric Voegelin (1901-1985) was one of the most original and influential philosophers of our time. Born in Cologne, Germany, he studied at the University of Vienna, where he became a professor of political science in the Faculty of Law. In 1938, he and his wife, fleeing Hitler, immigrated to the United State. They became American citizens in 1944. Voegelin spent much of his career at Louisiana State University, returning to the University of Munich in 1958. He spent the last five years of his career at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University before retiring there to continue his writing. During his lifetime he published dozens of books and more than one hundred articles.
