Re: much appreciated
- Dear Mr. McKane,
Thank you. If there is an interest in this text I will try to provide it
as a pdf-document, as soon as I find the time.
The relationship between Vico's Nuova Scienza and Voegelin's New
Science is discussed in Barry Cooper's introduction to CW, vol. 24.
For Voegelin's early conception of "Politische Wissenschaft"
in the context of German "Geisteswissenschaft" one might have a
look at the monograph of Hans-Jörg Sigwart: Das Politische und die
Wissenschaft. Intellektuell-biographische Studien zum Frühwerk Eric
Voegelins. Würzburg: Königshausen & Neumann, 2005. In my view,
this is certainly the best and most comprehensive book on the early
I know that Mr. Sigwart is planning an English edition of his work. But
I don't know about the state of affairs. Those who don't read
German can meanwhile find some of Mr. Sigwart's insights in his
article Modes of Experience - On Eric Voegelin's Theory of Governance,
in: Review of Politics, vol. 68, No. 2 (2006), S. 259-286.
