    Leo Strauss: An Introduction to His Thought and Intellectual Legacy.Thomas L. Pangle - 2006 - Johns Hopkins University Press.
    Leo Strauss's controversial writings have long exercised a profound subterranean cultural influence. Now their impact is emerging into broad daylight, where they have been met with a flurry of poorly informed, often wildly speculative, and sometimes rather paranoid pronouncements. This book, written as a corrective, is the first accurate, non-polemical, comprehensive guide to Strauss's mature political philosophy and its intellectual influence. Thomas L. Pangle opens a pathway into Strauss's major works with one question: How does Strauss's philosophic thinking contribute to (...)

  2. The Laws of Plato.Thomas L. Pangle (ed.) - 1988 - University of Chicago Press.
    _The Laws_, Plato's longest dialogue, has for centuries been recognized as the most comprehensive exposition of the _practical_ consequences of his philosophy, a necessary corrective to the more visionary and utopian _Republic_. In this animated encounter between a foreign philosopher and a powerful statesman, not only do we see reflected, in Plato's own thought, eternal questions of the relation between political theory and practice, but we also witness the working out of a detailed plan for a new political order that (...)

    With _Aristotle’s Teaching in the “Politics,” _Thomas L. Pangle offers a masterly new interpretation of this classic philosophical work. It is widely believed that the _Politics_ originated as a written record of a series of lectures given by Aristotle, and scholars have relied on that fact to explain seeming inconsistencies and instances of discontinuity throughout the text. Breaking from this tradition, Pangle makes the work’s origin his starting point, reconceiving the _Politics_ as the pedagogical tool of a master teacher. With (...)

    On Heisenberg’s Key Statements Concerning Ontology.Thomas L. Pangle - 2014 - Review of Metaphysics 67 (4):835-859.
    Despite a flurry of renewed scholarly interest in the development of Heisenberg’s scientific work, and in his complex relation to the dramatic unfolding of German cultural history in his time, there has yet to be executed a sustained and philosophically critical interpretative commentary on the book that is his crucial philosophical-ontological legacy, Physics and Philosophy: The Revolution in Modern Science. Given the profound ontological puzzles that continue to attend quantum physics and its implications for humanity’s past as well as present (...)

    The Puzzle of the Rhetorical Presidency.Thomas L. Pangle - 2007 - Critical Review 19 (2-3):403-413.
    Jeffrey Tulis’s classic study traces the central dilemmas of today’s presidency to Woodrow Wilson’s invention of the full‐blown “rhetorical presidency”: a radicalized version of Theodore Roosevelt’s essential rhetorical supplement to the Founders’ inadequate conception of the office. But what is Tulis’s teaching as to how we ought to evaluate this transformation? Tulis shows that our system suffers from a profound constitutional contradiction, with attendant deleterious consequences for our civic life; and he spotlights major virtues of TR’s “middle way.” What, then, (...)

    The Theological Basis of Liberal Modernity in Montesquieu's Spirit of the Laws.Thomas L. Pangle - 2010 - University of Chicago Press.
    The Spirit of the Laws —Montesquieu’s huge, complex, and enormously influential work—is considered one of the central texts of the Enlightenment, laying the foundation for the liberally democratic political regimes that were to embody its values. In his penetrating analysis, Thomas L. Pangle brilliantly argues that the inherently theological project of Enlightenment liberalism is made more clearly—and more consequentially— in Spirit than in any other work. _ In a probing and careful reading, Pangle shows how Montesquieu believed that rationalism, through (...)
