The Strauss reading list: so it seems that the Strauss story isn't going away. Leo Strauss' daughter, Jenny Strauss Clay (a professor of classics at UVA) defends her father's legacy in the New York Times. Another tribute to Strauss--this one by Bret Stephens--appears in the Jerusalem Post. But the only recent contribution that I've found really valuable is today's post by Josh Cherniss, who I had a chance to meet during my recent visit to Oxford. Josh has put together a nice list of secondary reading for anyone who wants to learn more about Strauss and Straussian political philosophy.
