"[These essays] display the incomparable insight and remarkable range of knowledge that set Strauss's works apart from any other twentieth-century philosopher's."—Charles R. Kesler, National Review

oh my god ! if you dont know already strauss is one of the most brillant esoteric writers in our lifetime....simply put he is amazing and so are the essay's found in this book. I enjoyed his essay, exoteric vrs. esoteric writing, it this essay he explains the diffrence between the two and how esoteric writing became an art form in early greek philosophy. my favorite part is when he explains how freemasonry is a vehical to conceal esoteric secrets from the common man. (basiclly not to dissuade the public but mearly because the common man has no real intrest in esoteric writting, and if he does then he could just simply join freemasonry and study ancient philosophy with fellow men intrested in esoteric subjects) i personally am a mason and have joined because of my intrest in esoteric subject matter. Strauss explains it so well though! I have personlly used this essay to help my friends who were intersted in masory to understand one of its many aspects. ANYHOW if you are intrested in masonry, esoteric material, or ancient philosophy and very brillant ways to interpet it, this is deffenetly your book. i also recomend it to fellow masons who may be itrested in getting involved in the esoteric side of masonry and need somewhere to start.Was this review helpful?
