Leo Strauss (1899-1973) was a German-American political philosopher whose writings focused on the relationship of philosophy to civil society. He theorized that Western civilization was founded upon two chief philosophical pillars: the Greco-Roman ("Athens") and the Judeo-Christian ("Jerusalem"), and that this premodern philosophy was preferable to Enlightenment ideals and concepts such as liberal progress, historical relativism, or social science.
