When a number of Voegelin enthusiasts get together, good things can happen! Today VoegelinView begins its life as an internet journal of Voegelin thought and conversation. With a little luck and a lot of hard work it may succeed. Success will be measured in a number of ways: if young people hear about Eric Voegelin through this journal, if new scholarly thought is offered here, if more books based on Voegelin’s thought are brought to public attention, and if the existing community of Voegelin scholars is able to exchange ideas and offer mutual help more easily, then this enterprise will be a success. My best wishes to all. Good luck!
