Series 4. Dialogues with Power circa 1952-2007

Physical Description: Carton 8, folders 18-52; Cartons 9-14; Box 2, folders 1-12

Arrangement

Divided by subject/chapter: General Materials, e.g. grant proposals, bibliography; Preface; Chapter I – Introduction and Theory; Chapter II – Old Testament/Hebrew Prophets; Plato – Chapters III/IV; Pre-Socratics – Chapter III/IV; Chapter V – Aristotle; Chapter VI – Sir Thomas More; Chapter VII – Machiavelli; Chapter VIII – Tocqueville; Chapter IX – Marx (and Hegel); Chapter X – Weber. The remaining subject files are arranged alphabetically, and these are followed by folders of Wolin's miscellaneous "loose" notes.

Scope and Content Note

Consists of drafts, notes, and secondary source materials related to Wolin's unpublished manuscript, "Dialogues with Power.” Wolin described his project in grant applications from 1963 and 1971 as a “study of the historical relationship between political theorists and the possessors of political power.” He focused on political theorists “whose life and writings indicated a conception of vocation in which theory and action are deliberately combined,” and who sought to translate their ideas into practice and immediately impact events by influencing rulers or potential ruling groups. Wolin wanted to show “how the idea of ‘theory’ and the role of the ‘theorist’ emerged,” and elucidate ideas about the relationship between theory and action.
Wolin worked on this manuscript for over 40 years, and many folders were undated. Efforts were made to group materials on similar subjects together, but dates were not assigned if they were not evident. Wolin’s notations include detailed instructions regarding the order of the text. Contents of folders were kept together, and his original folder titles and notes were retained. It is possible there are keys that elucidate his editorial instructions in this series or the next. Wolin incorporated parts of this manuscript into his revision of “Politics and Vision,” and he turned one chapter into his book, “Tocqueville between Two Worlds.” Researchers will find overlap with Series 3, Writings, and Series 6, Research Notebooks and Subject Files.

Series 5. Research Notebooks and Subject Files circa 1941-2010

Physical Description: Cartons 15-18; Carton 19, folders 1-85; Box 2, folder 13

Arrangement

Subject files and research notebooks are arranged alphabetically; original order of school notebooks was retained.

Scope and Content Note

This series consists of notes on readings, original thoughts, outlines, and secondary source materials, such as newspaper clippings (primarily from the Times Literary Supplement and The Listener). Notebooks often contain keys that specify which writings Wolin used the notes for. There are also notebooks and subject files from Wolin’s student days. These include notes from classes and readings at Oberlin and Harvard, as well as relevant clippings and articles about each subject that he collected later. Oberlin classes include Radical Political Theory and European Political Theory. There are a few Harvard papers and a few files related to Wolin’s dissertation. The school notebooks were disbound and kept together so researchers could see Wolin’s original arrangement.
Wolin revisted the same subjects throughout his career, and there is overlap between these subject files and materials found in Series 3, 4, and 6. Many files were undated, but researchers should be able to date them by the address labels or university stationery found inside Wolin’s notebooks. (Many have a Berkeley address, which means they were likely created sometime between 1954 and 1970.)
