Abstract

H.G. Stoker – on authoroity and power

In 1970 the late Prof. H.G. Stoker was appointed honorary professor in the Department of Philosophy at the Rand Afrikaans University. In this capacity, he held a series of lectures on political philosophy. The third lecture of this series was entitled “Authority and power” (“Gesag en mag”). What follows here is nothing but a re-edition of Stoker’s typescript notes, then distributed to his students (and audience). The fact that we as Christians have, together with everybody else been systematically brainwashed by humanism’s idol making of “democracy” and “people’s sovereignity”, lends an extraordinary high degree of relevance to this theme, which Stoker formulates in terms different from what we would expect (in our compromised view) to be.
