Jewish philosophy and the crisis of modernity : essays and lectures in modern Jewish thought by Leo Strauss( )

17 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Portuguese and held by 2,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to bring together the major essays and lectures of Leo Strauss in the field of modern Jewish thought. It contains some of his most famous published writings, as well as significant writings which were previously unpublished. Spanning almost 30 years of continuously deepening reflection, the book presents the full range of Strauss's contributions as a modern Jewish thinker. These essays and lectures cumulatively point toward the "postcritical" reconstruction of Judaism which Strauss envisioned, suggesting in rebuild along Maimonidean lines. Thus, the book lends credence to the view that Strauss was able to uncover and probe the crisis at the heart of modern Jewish thought and history, perhaps with greater profundity than any other contemporary Jewish thinker
The political philosophy of Hobbes, its basis and its genesis by Leo Strauss( Book )

84 editions published between 1936 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this classic analysis, Leo Strauss pinpoints what is original and innovative in the political philosophy of Thomas Hobbes. He argues that Hobbes's ideas arose not from tradition or science but from his own deep knowledge and experience of human nature. Tracing the development of Hobbes's moral doctrine from his early writings to his major work The Leviathan, Strauss explains contradictions in the body of Hobbes's work and discovers startling connections between Hobbes and the thought of Plato, Thucydides, Aristotle, Descartes, Spinoza, and Hegel

Leo Strauss : the early writings, 1921-1932 by Leo Strauss( )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This translation of eighteen virtually unknown early publications provides access for the first time to the origins of Leo Strauss's thought in the intellectual life of the German Jewish 'renaissance' in the 1920s. Themes range from the Enlightenment critique of the religion of Spinoza and the anti-critique of Jacobi, to the political Zionism of Herzl and the cultural Zionism of Buber and Ahad Ha'am. The essays and reviews reprinted in this volume document a youth caught in the theological-political conflict between the irretrievability of premodern religion and the disenchantedness of honest atheism, an impossible alternative that precipitated Strauss to seek out the possibility of a return to the level of natural ignorance presupposed in Socratic political philosophy
The argument and the action of Plato's Laws by Leo Strauss( Book )

33 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this intensive book-by-book examination, Leo Strauss arrives at a general interpretation of the Laws within the Platonic corpus. Through careful scrutiny of the actions and gestures of the speakers, analysis of the dramatic development and structure of the text, and penetrating discussion of the ideas on law and government, Strauss guides the reader through this intricate labyrinth of thought on the governing of a state. In contrast to the Republic, which presents an abstract ideal, neither intended for nor capable of being used as the legislative framework of an actual human community, the Laws provides guidelines for the establishment and maintenance of political order in the material world. With masterful interpretative skill, Strauss elucidates Plato's ideas on how the proper legislative and political foundation of a state will enable citizens to restrain selfish interest in favor of ideal political virtue and right opinion"--Unedited summary from book cover
