Editorial Reviews

Review

The best way to honor a great scholar is with more great scholarship. Over the last few decades, Thomas Pangle has been one of the most illuminating and prolific commentators on the history of political philosophy. As a teacher, he has educated several generations of wonderfully talented students. The discipline of political philosophy has been hugely enriched both by Pangle's own work, and by the work he has helped inspire in students and colleagues-as this excellent volume so powerfully testifies. (Ronald Beiner, University of Toronto)

An extraordinarily fine collection of essays—wide-ranging, yet coherent and profound—that pays fitting tribute to the work of Thomas Pangle, one of the truly great scholars and teachers of our generation. (Arthur Melzer, Michigan State University)

This bold and spirited volume provides a vivid tribute to the teaching of Thomas Pangle. Over a long career at Yale, Toronto, and now the University of Texas, Pangle has attracted students devoted to carrying on the legacy of his teacher, Leo Strauss, and bringing it to its current height of influence. Pangle's own writings, whether on Plato dialogues, Montesquieu's Spirit of the Laws, or the Hebrew Bible have contributed both to our understanding of these texts and to the esteem in which Strauss's legacy is held today. (Steven B Smith, Yale University)
