"God is therefore unknowable. This is the fundamental premise of the Bible." -- Leo Strauss
Leo Strauss (September 20, 1899 – October 18, 1973) was a political philosopher who specialized in classical political philosophy. He was born in Germany to Jewish parents and later emigrated 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.

Originally trained in the Neo-Kantian tradition with Ernst Cassirer and later acquainted with phenomenologists such as Edmund Husserl and Martin Heidegger, Strauss later focused his research on Greek texts of Plato and Aristotle, and encouraged application of their ideas on contemporary political theory.
