Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Mental Masturbation"

    If you can get past the Robin Lawson's continued mispronunciation of Gnosticism as Guh-Nosticism then you will undoubtedly be sorely disappointed by this work. (Just this alone was enough to drive one batty.)
    This treatise was self absorbed and pretentious. Very little light was shed on the subject matter of Gnosticism. Some of the author's ideas, for example that Hegel took his ideas from Gnosticism or that it represents latter day Gnosticism are specious. I don't think Mr. Voegelin really knew what Gnosticism actually was, unlike someone like Gilles Quispel who was a true authority and a contemporary of Mr. Voegelin. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR YOUR MONEY ON THIS.
