Eric Voegelin, a leading political theorist, contends that certain modern movements, including Positivism, Hegelianism, Marxism, and the God Is Dead movement, are variants of the Gnostic tradition of antiquity. Voegelin attempts to resolve the intellectual confusion that has resulted from the dominance of Gnostic thought by clarifying the distinction between political gnosticism and the philosophy of politics. Highly provocative, this program is essential listening for students of modern politics, philosophy, and religion. Download and start listening now!

    " This is almost a willfully ignorant book. All philosophy is gnostic inasmuch as it searches to reveal (aletheia) hidden truths not disclosed by everyday consciousness. Voegelin himself rejected his earlier idea of "Gnosticism" here. Others should too. "

    " Really insightful, though classic hopeless conservatism. Great analysis without offering solutions. But the analysis was mostly spot on. A little off with his Milleniarialism, but only because he lived before any significant preterism. "

    " I liked this one even better than "New Science of Politics." It is very insightful and will cause you to think of other modern thinkers in a new light. Watch out though, this ISI edition has some messed up pagination. "
