The lesson of Carl Schmitt : four chapters on the distinction between political theology and political philosophy by Heinrich Meier( Book )
42 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 710 libraries worldwide
With this book, Heinrich Meier completes his critical analyses of the controversial thought of Carl Schmitt that began with Carl Schmitt and Leo Strauss: The Hidden Dialogue (1995). Meier's interpretation - which first appeared in German in 1988, and has since been translated into French and Japanese, as well as English - has dramatically reoriented the international debate about Carl Schmitt and political theology. In The Lesson of Carl Schmitt, Meier identifies the core of Schmitt's thought as political theology - that is, political theorizing that claims to have its ultimate ground in the revelation of a mysterious or suprarational God. This radical, but half-hidden, theological foundation underlies the whole of Schmitt's often difficult and complex oeuvre, rich in historical turns and political convolutions, intentional deceptions and unintentional obfuscations

Leo Strauss and the theological-political problem by Heinrich Meier( Book )
18 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 345 libraries worldwide
"This book, by one of the most prominent interpreters of Leo Strauss's thought, is the first to address the problem that Leo Strauss himself said was the theme of his studies: the theologico-political problem or the confrontation with the theological and the political alternative to philosophy as a way of life. In his theologico-political treatise, which comprises four parts and an appendix, Heinrich Meier clarifies the distinction between political theology and political philosophy and reappraises the unifying center of Strauss's philosophical enterprise. The book is the culmination of Meier's work on the theologico-political problem. It will interest anyone who seeks to understand both the problem caused by revelation for philosophy and the challenge posed by political-religious radicalism in current events. The appendix makes available for the first time two lectures by Strauss that are immediately relevant to the subject of this book and that will open the way for future research and debate on the legacy of Strauss."--Jacket

Leo Strauss on Plato's Symposium by Leo Strauss( Book )
16 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and German and held by 91 libraries worldwide
The first major piece of unpublished work by Leo Strauss to appear in more than thirty years, Leo Strauss On Plato's "Symposium" offers the public the unprecedented experience of encountering this renowned scholar as his students did. Given as a course in autumn 1959 under the title "Plato's Political Philosophy," at the University of Chicago, these transcripts previously had circulated in samizdat fashion, passed down from one generation of students to the next. They show Strauss at his best, in his subtle and sometimes indirect style of analysis, which has attracted almost as much commentary as has the content of his thought. Strauss presents a coherent and complete interpretation of the Symposium, proceeding by a meticulous reading from beginning to end. Operating on the once common hypothesis that commentary is an excellent method of expounding the truth, Strauss sheds light not only on the meaning of the dialogue and its place in the Platonic corpus, but also on a host of important topics, including the nature of eros and its place in the overall economy of human life; the perennial quarrel between poetry and philosophy, and the relation of both to piety, politics, and morality; the character of Socrates and the questions of his trial; and many other matters. As provocative as they were a half century ago, these important lectures will be welcomed by students of classics, philosophy, politics, psychology, and political philosophy
Über das Glück des philosophischen Lebens Reflexionen zu Rousseaus Rêveries in zwei Büchern by Heinrich Meier( Book )
7 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 85 libraries worldwide
HauptbeschreibungDie Rêveries sind das schönste und das gewagteste Buch von Jean- Jacques Rousseau. Sie zeigen das Feuer der Philosophie im Widerschein des Wassers, in den Spiegelungen des Unbegrenzten, das näherer Bestimmung, des Unauffälligen, das sorgfältiger Betrachtung, der Oberfläche, die eingehender Auslegung bedarf. Sie gipfeln in einer poetischen Darstellung des Glücks, das das philosophische Leben eröffnet. Heinrich Meiers eindringliche Auseinandersetzung mit der letzten und am wenigsten verstandenen Schrift Rousseaus besteht aus zwei Büchern, die sich gegenseitig erhellen. Das erste
Politische Philosophie und die Herausforderung der Offenbarungsreligion by Heinrich Meier( Book )
11 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in German and English and held by 76 libraries worldwide
Hauptbeschreibung Die Offenbarungsreligion fordert die Philosophie theologisch und politisch heraus. Ihr Wahrheitsanspruch und ihre Gehorsamsforderung widerstreiten dem Recht und der Notwendigkeit der Philosophie, die auf freies, rückhaltloses Fragen gegründet ist. Sowenig der Autor die Philosophie als eine akademische Disziplin begreift, so wenig versteht er die Politische Philosophie als ein Feld im Garten der Philosophie. Sie ist vielmehr, so lautet seine These, eine besondere Wendung, eine Änderung der Blick- und Fragerichtung, die einen Unterschied im Ganzen macht. Denn die Philosophie be
On the happiness of the philosophic life : reflections on Rousseau's Rêveries in two books by Heinrich Meier( Book )
3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 70 libraries worldwide
Political philosophy cross-examined : perennial challenges to the philosophic life ( file )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"Political societies frequently regard philosophers as potential threats to morality and religion and even subject these thinkers to the gravest inquisitions and indictments. Socrates was executed for disbelieving in the gods of Athens, Jean-Jacques Rousseau was charged with capital crimes for his anti-Christian teachings, Galileo Galilei was found "vehemently suspect" of heresy, compelled to recant, and sentenced to incarceration for life. The contributors toPolitical Philosophy Cross-Examined aspire to reopen the case for the philosophic way of life while fully appreciating the harsh attacks advanced by its most fervent detractors. In an age where extremist movements, existentialism, and postmodernist thought challenge the authority of reason, the book is a seminal contribution to current literature on philosophy, politics, history, classics, and religion alike. Political Philosophy Cross-Examined is a festchrift in honor of Professor Heinrich Meier of the Siemens Foundation, the University of Chicago, and the University of Munich."--Publisher's website
