Abstract

The concept of the person in Eric Voegelin's early philosophy was developed in a reception, among others, of the works of Othmar Spann, H. Bergson, Sir Thomas Elyot, Stefan George, Max Scheler, and St. Augustine. It involved critically distancing himself from the Neo-Kantianism of German Staatslehre (Kelsen, Weber).

Keywords: Eric Voegelin, Person, Meditation, Virtue
