Leo Strauss, the Conservative Revolution, & National Socialism, Part 3

3,373 words

Part 3 of 4

Editor’s Note: 

Leo Strauss

Leo Strauss

In the previous installment of this series, I examined Leo Strauss’s argument that the roots of what he called “German nihilism” — including National Socialism — were not nihilistic. Instead, it is rooted in a moral critique of the modern world.
