This slim book comprises two essays penned by Voegelin in 1959-Science, Politics and Gnosticism and Ersatz Religion: The Gnostic Mass Movements Of Our Time.

These two essays were translated and published together in 1968. Both are attempts to apply 'Aristotelian' methods to modern politics. The first explains the tension between science and society: Society resists the therapeutic activity of science. I thought the second essay, 'Ersatz Religion' was more interesting than the first. Voegelin seemed to be on firmer ground tracing the 'gnostic' desire for a 'Realm of the Spirit' back to Joachim of Flora than he did as a critic of Hegel and Nietzsche. But the whole book is short and thought-provoking. American conservatives, who still sometimes mention the Left's will to "immanentize the eschaton," picked up the term from "Ersatz Religion"

Science, Politics and Gnosticism comprises two essays by Eric Voegelin (1901-85), arguably one of the most provocative and influential political philosophers of the last century. In these essays, Voegelin contends that certain modern movements, including positivism, Hegelianism, Marxism, and the "God is dead" school, are variants of the gnostic tradition he identified in his classic work The New Science of Politics
