ReviewNovember 2006Philosophy and the World it RulesThis book is composed of a translation of Xenophon s Hiero a commentary by Leo Strauss On Tyranny on it two essays one by Koj ve one by Strauss outlining the controversy between them and finally in the latest edition the correspondence between them After reading the essays Koj ve and Strauss aimed at each other one comes to suspect that the major difference between the two is how precisely philosophy is to rule the world Strauss prefers the ancient way of moderately and occasionally influencing the Nomos while Koj ve insists that Nomos ie Law must be exactly eual to Philosophy or precisely eual to exactly what philosophy wants of it Thus Strauss is for ruling while Koj ve wants to Rule Thus it really is very funny how Koj ve accuses Strauss of insanity By this Koj ve only means that if a philosopher does not go forth and change the World he can never know that his understanding is not mere private fancy that is madness Since Koj ve believes that in order to be rational philosophy must rule all he accuses the practical moderation defended by Strauss of madness Of course one could moderately accuse Koj ve s Enlightened dream of One World of the same thing Thus the argument between them is not whether philosophy should rule but exactly how it should rule Koj ve believes that without the arrival of the Final Philosophical Artifact the Universal Homogenous State UHS philosophy is only a private mania But Strauss says that the UHS will make philosophy impossible To Koj ve the UHS is a monument to Philosophical Reason while for Strauss it is its tomb Koj ve invites Strauss to join him in making the UHS it is a great honor but Strauss declines because he cannot bring himself to preside over the End of Philosophy Thus it is very amusing that over the years thanks primarily to Allan Bloom who studied with both Koj ve and Strauss and students of students of Bloom there has arisen the Straussian neoconservative position that it is the duty of US foreign policy to make the World into good democratic liberal capitalists in the Euro American vein But this Straussian neoconservative position really is at most a hybrid of Koj ve and Strauss which leans decidedly in the Koj vean direction No Then have the courage to read the exchange between Koj ve and Strauss Essays and Correspondence and decide for yourself For those that only have the old 1983 edition I want to point out even insist that the correspondence adds some nice touches to the argument between Koj ve and Strauss that should not be missed For instance we see here uite clearly how important the Criterion of Knowledge is to Koj ve s thought As regards myself I came to Hegel by way of the uestion of criteria I see only three possibilities a Plato s Husserl s intuition of essences which I do not believe for one has to believe it b relativism in which one cannot live c Hegel and circularity If however one assumes circularity as the only criterion of truth including the moral then everything else follows automatically Koj ve Letter of Sept 19 1950 p 256 Thus when one sees that between the extremes of what Koj ve is pleased to call intuition Religion Phenomenology esoteric silence and its failure chatter relativism postmodernism there is only the Circularity of the Concept then one begins to see why Koj ve must proclaim the End of History it is to protect the Absolute Knowledge such Circularity reuires Absolute Knowledge btw means unchanging knowledge while circularity means that wherever we begin our research we end if we proceed scientifically ie in a Hegelian manner always in the same place Koj ve in the same letter goes on to concede that there was for him once a fourth possibility For a time I believed in a fourth possibility nature is identical hence the classical criterion can be retained for nature But now I believe that one can only be silent about nature mathematics Hence either one remains classically silent cp Plato s Parmenides and Seventh Epistle or one chatters in the modern manner Pierre Bayle or one is an Hegelian p 256 Thus we see that nature was at one time also a possible criterion for Koj ve But he abandons it and with it the Hegelian Philosophy of Nature Strauss however is insistent that there is a human nature and he continually throws it in the face of Koj ve Of this Koj ve writes Regarding the issue I can only keep repeating the same thing If there is something like human nature then you are surely right in everything But to deduce from premises is not the same as to prove these premises And to infer premises from anyway uestionable conseuences is always dangerous Koj ve Letter of October 29 1953 p 261 Thus Koj ve says to Strauss that he can t prove what he says and of course Koj ve can But he can do so if and only if History Ends as Koj ve says it will But the proof of success is no proof of Reason but only of power In any case we see Strauss still pressing the point on nature a few years later You have never given me an answer to my uestions a was Nietzsche not right in describing the Hegelian Marxian end as the last man and b what would you put into the place of Hegel s philosophy of nature Strauss Letter of Sept 11 1957 p 291 It is my belief that Strauss is convinced that this lack of what the ancients would have thought of as a cosmology ie cosmogony allows ordinary people in the secular atheistic UHS to turn to religion He argues that Wisdom in the UHS can only belong to a tiny few and that if wisdom does not become common property the mass remains in the thrall of religion that is to say of an essentially particular and particularizing power Christianity Islam Judaism which means that the decline and fall of the universal homogenous state is unavoidable Strauss Letter August 22 1948 p 238 Without some sort of Cosmogony the atheistic UHS cannot hold onto its citizens Of course this is true only if the UHS must be entirely secular However if somehow a right Hegelian ie religious interpretation were to prevail in the UHS this would no longer be necessary And the UHS could survive indefinitely But Koj ve of course discounts this possibility for him there are only two Hegelian possibilities If the Westerners remain capitalist that is to say also nationalist they will be defeated by Russia and that is how the End State will come about If however they integrate their economies and policies they are on their way to doing so then they can defeat Russia And that is how the End State will be reached the same universal and homogenous State But in the first case it will be spoken about in Russian with Lysenko etc and in the second case in European Koj ve Letter of Sept 19 1950 p 256 But historically this is false The first interpretation of Hegel during his lifetime was religious Thus one wonders if the UHS with a universal Hegelian religion could somehow be brought about But that is another story So for those of you familiar with an earlier edition I hope I have given some hint of how the letters amplify and expand the argument between Koj ve and Strauss that we first saw in the essays included in earlier editions This book is superb I have only hinted at its intricate arguments do not pass it up
