Words born of many years' experience, Moving a Puddle offers readers a collection of previously published essays under one cover. All told, the book contains 48 essays, spanning thirteen years, as well as the full version of an interview with Sandra back in 1998.
Published Essays, 1966-1985 includes some of the most trenchant and compelling of Eric Voegelin's work and is an indispensable companion to his Anamnesis and to the fourth and fifth volumes of Order and History, which were prepared for publication during the same period, the last two decades of the author's life. These essays are quintessential Voegelin.

Running through all the material is Voegelin's conviction that the truly scientific or philosophical life is ordered through an Anselmian fides quaerens intellectum, a faith in search of understanding. Thus, the assertion that "all men by nature desire to know," which opens Aristotle's Metaphysics, is rightly completed by the words the divine Ground of being. It is the search of the Ground by a mystic philosopher-consciously indebted to such great contemplatives as Plato, Anselm, of Canterbury, jean Bodin, and Henri Bergson-that distinguishes Voegelin's own pilgrimage through time in partnership with God. Nowhere does this come more powerfully and luminously clear than in the pages of Published Essays, 1966-1985.
