Leo Strauss

Wikipedia describes Leo Strauss as:

a German-American political philosopher and classicist who specialized in classical political philosophy. He was born in Germany to Jewish parents and later emigrated from Germany to the United States. He spent most of his career as a professor of political science at the University of Chicago, where he taught several generations of students and published fifteen books.

My description of him, written around 2003, is here.
