Welcome to the EVS Website

The Centre of Eric Voegelin Studies

In 2008 an independent research centre was founded at the Ugent to study and promote the philosophical writings of Erich Hermann Wilhelm Voegelin. The Collected Works of Eric Voegelin, published by University of Missouri Press, cover his lifetime research of experience and symbolisation, of order and history. These valuable manuscripts have received an ever increasing global attention.

EVS, the Centre for Eric Voegelin Studies at the Ugent, collaborates with the Eric Voegelin Society world wide, the Eric-Voegelin-Archiv (Munich, Germany) and the Eric Voegelin Institute (Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA, USA). EVS stimulates participation of researchers in a variety of academic fields. It serves research within Ghent University, as well as on an international level.
