about

The essays collected in Persecution and the Art of Writing all deal with one problem—the relation between philosophy and politics. Here, Strauss sets forth the thesis that many philosophers, especially political philosophers, have reacted to the threat of persecution by disguising their most controversial and heterodox ideas.
Leo Strauss's contributions to political philosophy include Natural Right and History, Platonic Political Philosophy, and The Rebirth of Classical Political Rationalism, all published by the University of Chicago Press.
