It contains some of his most famous published writings, as well as significant writings which were previously unpublished. Spanning almost 30 years of continuously deepening reflection, the book presents the full range of Strausss contributions as a modern Jewish thinker. These essays and lectures cumulatively point toward the postcritical reconstruction of Judaism which Strauss envisioned, suggesting in rebuild along Maimonidean lines. Thus, the book lends credence to the view that Strauss was able to uncover and probe the crisis at the heart of modern Jewish thought and history, perhaps with greater profundity than any other contemporary Jewish thinker.
