ABSTRACT
A literary criticism of the book “What Is Political Philosophy?” by Leo Strauss is presented. The author uses the book to illustrate the political philosophy that Strauss intended to facilitate, including his focus on sectarianism and Platonism. It is attested that his theories are more comprehensible than those referenced by many concerning the views of modern Straussians.
