In the winter of 1965, Leo Strauss taught a seminar on Hegel at the
University of Chicago. While Strauss did not consider himself a
Hegelian nor write about Hegel at any length, his writings contain
intriguing references to the philosopher, particularly in
connection with his studies of Hobbes, in his debate in On Tyranny
with Alexandre Koje ve; and in his account of the "three waves" of
modern political philosophy. Leo Strauss on Hegel reconstructs
Strauss's seminar on Hegel, supplemented by passages from an
earlier version of the seminar from which only fragments of a
transcript remain. Strauss focused in his seminar on the lectures
collected in The Philosophy of History, which he considered more
accessible than Hegel's written works. In his own lectures on
Hegel, Strauss continues his project of demonstrating how modern
philosophers related to ancient thought and explores the
development and weaknesses of modern political theory. Strauss is
especially concerned with the relationship in Hegel between
empirical history and his philosophy of history, and he argues for
the primacy of religion in Hegel's understanding of history and
society. In addition to a relatively complete transcript, Leo
Strauss on Hegel also includes annotations, which bring context and
clarity to the text.
