Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

One of the outstanding thinkers of our time offers in this book his final words to posterity. Studies in Platonic Political Philosophy was well underway at the time of Leo Strauss's death in 1973. Having chosen the title for the book, he selected the most important writings of his later years and arranged them to clarify the issues in political philosophy that occupied his attention throughout his life.

About the Author

At the time of his death, Leo Strauss was the Scott Buchanan Distinguished Scholar in Residence at St. John's College. His contributions to political philsophy include Natural Right and History, The Argument and Action of Plato's Laws, Socrates and Aristophanes, The Political Philosophy of Hobbes, The City and Man, Thoughts on Machiavelli, and, with Joseph Cropsey, History of Political Philosophy, all published by the University of Chicago Press. Thomas L. Pangle is professor of political science at the University of Toronto.

The Nietzsche-Beyond Good and Evil essay is worth it alone; absolutely brilliant, finally someone savvy to the Plato connection in his thought.
