"Voegelin's construction of Plato . . . is an original work that has taken its place in the first rank of great interpretation of Greek philosophy."—Gerhart Niemeyer
"Voegelin is superior to Toynbee in having a much wider and deeper philosophical background, in taking a greater interest in the history of ideas, and in showing a profounder sympathy with the Judeo-Christian tradition which lives at the heart of Western civilization."—William Foxwell Albright
"It is evident that the lavish praise Voegelin has won from many critics is not extravagant. His is one of the monuments of scholarship of our time. . . . Amid his solid learning and scholarly hypotheses are passages of incandescent eloquence, occasional sallies of humor. His work is an invitation to intellectual and spiritual adventure."—Christian Century
"Voegelin is probably the most influential historian of our century. . . . He is no vulgarizer or ideologue, but a scholar of such breadth and depth as the educational tendency of our age has made very rare among us."
