By: Grant N. Havers (author)Hardback
1 - 2 weeks availability
Leo Strauss has been simultaneously condemned by the Left as an extreme opponent of liberal democracy and celebrated by the Right as a defender of Western civilization. Rejecting both of these portrayals, Grant N. Havers shifts the debate beyond the conventional parameters of our age. In Leo Strauss and Anglo-American Democracy, Havers interprets Leo Strauss' political philosophy from a conservative standpoint, depicting Strauss as a Cold War liberal with a strong secular bias who believed Anglo-American democracy was the one true universal regime that could be embraced and practiced by all human beings regardless of time, place, or creed.
Grant N. Havers is chair of the Department of Philosophy, with a cross-appointment in political studies, at Trinity Western University in British Columbia, Canada. He is the author of Lincoln and the Politics of Christian Love.
