Progressive Minds, Conservative Politics: Leo Strauss’ Later Writings on Maimonides overturns the conventional view of Strauss’s interpretation of Maimonides, arguing that he identified, and identified himself with, an esoteric Maimonidean teaching on progress: progress within the Bible, beyond the Bible, and even beyond the rabbinic sages. Politically a conservative thinker, Strauss, like Maimonides, located man’s deepest satisfaction in progressing in the discernment of the truth.
