Natural right and history by Leo Strauss( Book )

153 editions published between 1940 and 2011 in 9 languages and held by 2,549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this classic work, Leo Strauss examines the problem of natural right and argues that there is a firm foundation in reality for the distinction between right and wrong in ethics and politics. On the centenary of Strauss's birth, and the fiftieth anniversary of the Walgreen Lectures which spawned the work, Natural Right and History remains as controversial and essential as ever. "Strauss ...makes a significant contribution towards an understanding of the intellectual crisis in which we find ourselves ...[and] brings to his task an admirable scholarship and a brilliant, incisive mind."--John H. Hallowell, American Political Science Review Leo Strauss (1899-1973) was the Robert Maynard Hutchins Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus in Political Science at the University of Chicago

The political philosophy of Hobbes, its basis and its genesis by Leo Strauss( Book )

91 editions published between 1936 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,790 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

The argument and the action of Plato's Laws by Leo Strauss( Book )

32 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 970 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
Persecution and the art of writing by Leo Strauss( Book )

45 editions published between 1952 and 2010 in English and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays collected in Persecution and the Art of Writing all deal with one problem -- the relation between philosophy and politics.

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

13 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 262 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
