Ellis SandorThis concise and authoritative introduction to Eric Voegelin's philosophy will be invaluable for the reader approaching his thought for the first time and be of interest to the experts as well. It is lucid, cogent, and insightful. Federici takes account of much of Voegelin's published work and of some of the important and extensive critical literature. His treatment of such complicated questions as Voegelin's relationship to philosophy or to Christianity or to political conservatism (among other issues) is balanced, lively, and clarifying. Eric Voegelin deserves a prominent place on the bookshelf of anyone interested in understanding the mind of perhaps the premier political philosopher of the last century, the great diagnostician of the crisis of our times. Warmly recommended.
