Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Almost three decades after Leo Strauss's death, Nasser Behnegar offers the first sustained exposition of what Strauss was best known for: his radical critique of contemporary social science - particularly of political science. Behnegar argues that Strauss was not averse to the scientific study of politics, but he did reject the idea that it could be built upon political science's cursory distinction between facts and values. Max Weber was, for Strauss, the most profound exponent of values relativism in social science, and Behnegar's explication artfully illuminates Strauss's critique of Weber's belief in the ultimate insolubility of all value conflicts. As Behnegar shows, values - the ethical component lacking in contemporary social science - are essential to Strauss's project of constructing a genuinely scientific study of politics.

Rezension:

"In no small part as a result of his acute grasp of Strauss''s being a philosopher, Behnegar has the honor of having authored the single best book on Strauss."-Weekly Standard

?[This] is the best book-length study of Strauss to date, because like Strauss, Behnegar has a naïve concern for discovering a scientific (theoretical) perspective on politics, whether ancient or modern.??Rafael Major, Perspectives on Political Science--Rafael Major "Perspectives on Political Science "

?It is easy to come upon sweeping denunciations of Strauss, but difficult to find any serious engagement with what he actually wrote. This dearth of textual criticism has now been partially remedied by Boston College political scientist Nasser Behnegar . . . . Behnegar proves himself familiar with Strauss?s entire corpus, from his early studies on Spinoza, Maimonides, and Hobbes to his later essays, some published only posthumously. . . . Throughout his book, Behnegar manifests great doggedness and genuine openness of mind. These traits, also evident in Strauss himself, enable Behnegar to get inside the latter?s universe of discourse, and to prove that Strauss was not an enemy but ?a friend, perhaps an indispensable friend? of political science. . . . Behnegar beautifully manages the difficult task of being sympathetic both to Weber?s work and to Strauss?s dissection of his work. . . . He has written a book Strauss would have saluted, for he ne

"Strauss''s criticisms of Weber are among the most powerful and challenging that have been made. . . . Behnegar has provided a very detailed exposition of Strauss''s main criticisms of both Weber and the state of social science."--;i>Max Weber Studies"--Peter Lassman "Max Weber Studies "
