Persecution and the Art of Writing

Front Cover
University of Chicago Press, Oct 15, 1988 - Literary Criticism - 204 pages
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.
