The New Thinkery

Oct 4, 2023

The guys are joined by Professor Nasser Behnegar, Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies at Boston College. The group discuss how Strauss delves into the differences between classical political philosophy and modern political thought, with an emphasis on classical philosophers seeking to discover timeless, objective truths about justice and human nature, while modern thinkers often embrace relativism and historical contingency in their approach to politics. Also highlighted is the importance of understanding these foundational differences in order to critically evaluate modern political ideas and their implications for society.
