Leo Strauss and Alexander Kojève advanced sharply contrasting estimations of the modern tyrannies that arose in their lifetime. This collection of essays continues their debate, which centered on Xenophon’s dialogue, On Tyranny, but extended to a consideration of tyranny “ancient and modern” and finally to the philosophic underpinnings of modern political regimes.
