Upcoming Speaking Engagement: Panel “Political Theory as a Resource for Political Challenges,” Eric Voegelin Society

I was delighted to accept an invitation to speak at the above panel last week.

The panel is organized by the Eric Voegelin Society and traditionally takes place during the Annual Meeting of the American Political Science Association, to be held in Seattle, Washington, from September 30 – October 3, 2021.

The preliminary topic of my paper is “Tocqueville’s Relevance for Modern Democracy.” Further information will follow.

“The Eric Voegelin Society (EVS) honors the scholarship and memory of Erich Hermann Wilhelm Voegelin, widely recognized as one of the premier minds of the 20th century.

Established as a non-profit organization in May 2012, EVS is an educational organization devoted to the revitalization of teaching and understanding of Eric Voegelin’s work and fundamental expressions of human civilization in art, literature, science, and politics. (…)

Voegelin dedicated his life to the study of widespread political violence and the devastation that results when totalitarian ideologies that closely resemble religions foster the notion that pursuing the creation of utopias on Earth is achievable and worth any cost, including death.”
