Jenny Strauss Clay is professor of classics at the University of Virginia and the daughter of Leo Strauss. Today’s New York Times carries her excellent defense of her father: “The real Leo Strauss.” In her telling, Strauss resembles Socrates in more than one respect.
At the end of the column she recalls sitting in on one of his classes at the University of Chicago in the 1960’s. Readers interested in seeing for themselves how Strauss taught and what he had to say might want to take a look at On Plato’s Symposium, a book consisting of transcripts of the classes in one of his University of Chicago courses.
