Product Description: "Many analysts have attempted to understand ideologies by reference to particular historical conditions or intellectual trends. Eric Voegelin, however, was probably the first to attempt to explain ideological thought and activity through an analysis directed at the level of consciousness. Sixty years of examining the history of political movements and symbolisms led him to the striking conclusion that the consciousness characteristic of the modern ideologue is a form of spiritual disorder closely related to a perennial pattern of rebellion against the most fundamental conditions of human existence." "Eric Voegelin and the Politics of Spiritual Revolt, by Michael Franz, is the first book-length analysis of Voegelin's writings on ideology and the history of spiritual disorder. Because Voegelin's basic theoretical position shifted dramatically over the course of his career and because his analysis of ideology and its source was never given full and final expression in a single work, Franz's comprehensive study is especially valuable." "The author provides the first sustained examination of Voegelin's contentions that the various and diverse ideologies of the modern age are rooted in a common pattern of consciousness; that Christianity was an important force in the origination of medieval and modern patterns of disordered consciousness; and that an essential equivalence exists among patterns of disordered consciousness across historical eras. He also includes the first analysis of Voegelin's search for forms of individual and social therapy that could serve as counterparts to his diagnoses of spiritual and political disorders." "Franz incorporates unusually extensive notes that refer the reader to Voegelin's publications, and he also provides the most impressive bibliography of secondary works yet to appear in print. Based on painstaking research in a wide range of sources, this book offers a clear and stimulating discussion of the work of one of the most important and complex thinkers of our time."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?

3. How do I track my order?

4. How do I return my books?

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
