Summary expansion
"Eric Voegelin is famous as a philosopher of history and as one of the most eminent political scientists of the 20th century. His most fundamental work on political theory, the "New Science of Politics", is nowadays considered a classic in its field. While the "New Science" has always been a very controversial book, its critics have hardly ever taken the pain to pinpoint the weaknesses they condemned Voegelin's book for." "There is, however, one exception: Only shortly after the appearance of Voegelins "New Science" in 1954, Hans Kelsen has written a most detailed reply to this book of his former student. This reply, which was known to Voegelin and is mentioned in his autobiography, is now being published by the ontos verlag. Being a distinguished philosopher himself of an erudition and breadth of knowledge that matches that of Eric Voegelin, Hans Kelsen is able to support the critical stance he takes on Voegelin's "New Science" by clear and well founded argument." "Published in combination with the correspondence between Eric Voegelin and Hans Kelsen, this critical reply to Voegelins "New Science" is not only an important contribution to the dispute about the foundations of political order in modern society, but will also prove valuable to readers generally interested in Voegelin's life and work."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
