The death of the spirit is the price of progress.
Voegelin quotes
Christ is the head of the corpus mysticum, which includes all men from the beginning of the world to its end. He is not the president of a special-interest club.
The course of history as a whole is no object of experience; history has no eidos, because the course of history extends into the unknown future.

Voegelin Eric quotes
Philosophy springs from the love of being; it is man's loving endeavor to perceive the order of being and attune himself to it. Gnosis desires dominion over being; in order to seize control of being the Gnostic constructs his system. The building of systems is a gnostic form of reasoning, not a philosophical one.
