There has been considerable interest in recent years in German social thinkers of the Weimar era. Generally, this has focused on reactionary and nationalist figures such as Schmitt and Heidegger. In this book, Austin Harrington offers a broader account of the German intellectual legacy of the period. He explores the ideas of a circle of left-liberal cosmopolitan thinkers (Troeltsch, Scheler, Tönnies, Max Weber, Alfred Weber, Mannheim, Jaspers, Curtius, and Simmel) who responded to Germany's crisis by rejecting the popular appeal of nationalism. Instead, they promoted pan-European reconciliation based on notions of a shared European heritage between East and West. Harrington examines their concepts of nationhood, religion, and 'civilization' in the context of their time and in their bearing on subsequent debates about European identity and the place of the modern West in global social change. The result is a groundbreaking contribution to current questions in social, cultural and historical theory.

"The West" is a central idea in German public discourse, yet historians know surprisingly little about the evolution of the concept. Contrary to common assumptions, this volume argues that the German concept of the West was not born in the twentieth century, but can be traced from a much earlier time. In the nineteenth century, "the West" became associated with notions of progress, liberty, civilization, and modernity. It signified the future through the opposition to antonyms such as "Russia" and "the East," and was deployed as a tool for forging German identities. Examining the shifting meanings, political uses, and transnational circulations of the idea of "the West" sheds new light on German intellectual history from the post-Napoleonic era to the Cold War.

It consists of 50 chapters across a broader range of topics in the social and human sciences.

Gerard Delanty offers a critical interpretation of the European heritage today in light of recent developments in the human and social sciences, and in view of a mood of crisis in Europe that compels us to re-think the European past. One of the main insights informing this book is that a transnational and global perspective on European history can reorient the European heritage in a direction that offers a more viable way for contemporary Europe to articulate an intercultural identity in keeping with the emerging shape of Europe, and with its own often acknowledged past. He argues that the European heritage is based less on a universalistic conception of culture than on a plurality of interconnecting narratives. Such a perspective opens up new directions for scholarship and public debate on heritage that are guided by critical cosmopolitan considerations that highlight contention, resistances, competition, and dissonance. He argues that the specificity of the European dimension of culture is in the entanglement of many cultures rather than in an original culture. The cultures of Europe are not separated but have been shaped in close interaction with each other and with the non-European world. Nations are not therefore unique, exceptional, or fundamentally different from each other. The outcome of such intermingling is a multiplicity of ideas of Europe that serve as shared cultural reference points.

Es gibt nur wenige Klassiker der modernen politischen Philosophie - Eric Voegelins Die neue Wissenschaft der Politik ist einer von ihnen. Ihre Erstveröffentlichung 1952 in den USA zog durch eine Titelgeschichte vom Time Magazine sogleich breite Aufmerksamkeit auf sich und brachte dem Autor den Ruf eines Theoretikers von Rang ein. Sie ist im besten Sinne des Wortes eine Streit- und zugleich eine Programmschrift. In dezidierter Frontstellung gegen das positivistische Wissenschaftsverständnis unternimmt der Autor den Versuch, die politische Wissenschaft in Anknüpfung an die Tradition der klassischen episteme politike als eine Wissenschaft von menschlicher und gesellschaftlicher Ordnung neu zu begründen. In ihrem Mittelpunkt stehen, neben der Frage nach dem Wesen der Rationalität, eine Philosophie der Geschichte mit einer ebenso kritischen wie kontroversen Deutung der westlichen Modernität. Als "ein Werk von exzeptioneller Qualität" brachte Die neue Wissenschaft der Politik Voegelin den begehrten Lippencott Award der American Political Science Association ein. Auch heute, ein halbes Jahrhundert nach ihrem ersten Erscheinen, hat sie nichts von ihrer ursprünglichen Frische, Aktualität und intellektuellen Brillanz verloren.
