Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThe 4th volume in this study of the order of human existence, breaks with the course Voegelin originally charted, in which man's societal existence and the corresponding symbolism of order were presented in historical succession. This volume treats history as a process in a flux of divine presence.
