VoegelinView: Call for PapersBy Jeffrey Polet for FRONT PORCH REPUBLIC
VoegelinView (https://voegelinview.com/) is an interdisciplinary and international website dedicated to the thought of Eric Voegelin as well as to political philosophy as public commentary that includes all aspects of culture, including philosophy, religion, politics, society, science, education, and literature. It is also a resource for those who wish to learn more about Eric Voegelin’s own political thought. VoegelinView publishes on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and occasionally Saturda
Publications for this coming January include works about Heidegger, Stefan George, King Lear, and global politics; for February and March are works on political realism, the European Union, the U.S. presidency, and the politics of Russia, Ukraine, and Poland; and for April are works about Voegelin. Every Friday during this period will be dedicated to Russian politics, literature, and culture in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution.
For this summer, we will look at Voegelin, philosophy, politics, literature, and higher education; and for this fall, we will look at Voeglein, higher education, and politics and religion, particularly Protestantism, in recognition of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, when Luther sent his Theses to Albert of Brandenburg on October 31, 1517.
There are three type of entries on VoegelinView: articles, essays, and book reviews. Articles are academic works written for a scholarly audience but available for all to read, comment, and criticize; essays are aimed for the public to elucidate and illuminate both topical and timeless topics; and book reviews are critical investigation of both scholarly and non-scholarly works. Articles, essays, and book reviews need not examine Voegelin’s writings; however, all submissions should embody the spirit of Voegelin’s work, particularly its realism, freedom from ideology and cant, and concern to analyze critically the subject of study. All writing should be academically informed and publicly accessible.
