Manent on Strauss (part 1): Strauss and Nietzsche

Updated: Jan 18

This is the first of two discussions where I discuss Pierre Manent’s writings on Leo Strauss. Here I discuss Manent’s analysis of the relationship between Nietzsche and Strauss, which unfolds into a broad introduction to the thought of Leo Strauss beginning with Rousseau and going back though Machiavelli and Hobbes into the Medieval Islamic and Jewish thinkers before returning to a critique of Hegel and entering into a discussion of Nietzsche.
