Eric Voegelin (born Erich Hermann Wilhelm Vögelin; January 3, 1901 – January 19, 1985) was a German-born American political philosopher. He was born in Cologne, then within Imperial Germany, and educated in political science at the University of Vienna. He became a teacher and then an associate professor of political science at the Faculty of Law. In 1938 he, with his wife, fled from the Nazi forces which had recently entered Vienna, emigrating to the United States, where they became citizens in 1944. He spent most of his academic career at the University of Notre Dame, Louisiana State University, the University of Munich and the Hoover Institution of Stanford University.
