Natural Right and History
University of Chicago Press, 15 de out de 1965 - 326 páginas
The problem of natural right is one of the most controversial and significant issues in contemporary political and social philosophy. Leo Strauss, eminent author of "The Political Philosophy of Hobbes", examines the current status of this problem and shows that the reasons which have led to a rejection of natural right are not valid. "Is there any foundation in reality for the distinction between right and wrong in ethics and politics? Professor Strauss believes that there is and in presenting his case makes significant contribution towards an understanding of the intellectual crisis in which we find ourselves...[He] brings to his task an admirable scholarship and a brilliant, incisive mind. His style reflects the lucidity of his thinking and as a consequence his book deserves a wide audience, not only among political theorists, for whom it is indispensable, but among political scientists generally". -- John H. Hallowell, "American Political Science Review"
