Book Description:

Leo Strauss's controversial writings have long exercised a profound subterranean cultural influence. Now their impact is emerging into broad daylight, where they have been met with a flurry of poorly informed, often wildly speculative, and sometimes rather paranoid pronouncements.

This book, written as a corrective, is the first accurate, non polemical, comprehensive guide to Strauss's mature political philosophy and its intellectual influence. Thomas L. Pangle opens a pathway into Strauss's major works with one question: How does Strauss's philosophic thinking contribute to our democracy's civic renewal and to our culture's deepening, critical self understanding?

This book includes a synoptic critical survey of writings from scholars who have extended Strauss's influence into the more practical, sub philosophic fields of social and political science and commentary. Pangle shows how these analysts have in effect imported Straussian impulses into a 'new' kind of political and social science.
