Read full description of the books:



"In his third and concluding work on the writings of Xenophon, Leo Strauss discusses Memorabilia, Apology of Socrates to the Jury, and Symposium. This book, together with On Tyranny and Xenophon's Socratic Discourse (also available from St. Augustine's Press), constitutes the core of Professor Strauss's rediscovery of classical political thought and provides a complete statement about Socrates as well as a thorough and careful interpretation of Xenophon." Relying exclusively on the texts, Professor Strauss analyzes and compares every seemingly casual utterance as well as the more formal statements to recover the true Socrates and to determine the character of political philosophy. He investigates its origins, possibilities, and intention against the non-philosophical background from which it emerged. A valuable guide also to Xenophon's charm, grace, and profundity, this last volume in the monumental trilogy helps to restore the traditional dignity of Xenophon as a wise and masterful writer.

In his early years studying in Germany he acquainted himself with seminal German thinkers of the 20th century such as Martin Heidegger, Edmund Husserl and Ernst Cassirer. As a person of Jewish ancestry, Strauss fled to the United States during the rule of Third Reich and taught at the University of Chicago. There, he wrote commentaries on ancient Greek thought of Plato and Aristotle, as well as the medieval philosophy of Maimonides and Islamic philosophers, and expounded his thought on political philosophy.
