Liberal democratic thought in the twentieth century is composed of two strands: the classical, which emphasizes human excellence, and the modern, which emphasizes individual freedom and social equality. In this collection of essays, Strauss examines the ambiguous relationship between these tendencies, seeking to illuminate the democratic discourse.
From the Back Cover: Revered and reviled, Leo Strauss has left a rich legacy of work that continues to spark discussion and controversy. This volume of essays ranges over critical themes that define Strauss's thought: t he tension between reason and revelation in the Western tradition, the philosophical roots of liberal democracy, and especially the conflicting yet complementary relationship between ancient and modern liberalism. For those seeking to become acquainted with this provocative thinker, one need look no further.
