The book also provides a veritable catalog of the thinkers who formed the intellectual foundation of the twentieth century. Voegelin’s personal recollections of these men provide fresh insight into their thought as well, as he discusses their contributions to his own philosophical development and to the consciousness of the age.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“We are indeed fortunate that one of the twentieth century’s authentic titans in philosophy and history thought to set down his autobiographical reflections before his passing. It is hard to imagine a more lustrous and also engrossing memoir.” Robert Nisbet
“A valuable introduction for any student of Voegelin.” Walker Percy
