English summary: The third volume, published shortly after Talmon's death in 1980, has been translated into German for the first time. The outstanding trilogy by the Polish historian Jacob L. Talmon (1916-1980) who taught many years until his death the history of totalitarian democracy at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem became the most influential interpretation of the history of ideas. His findings were groundbreaking for the reconstruction of intellectual history in totalitarian ideology in the 20th century. In the first volume Talmon discusses the origins of totalitarian democracy in the 18th century.
