Overview
"On Tyranny" is Leo Strauss s classic reading of Xenophon s dialogue "Hiero," or "Tyrannicus," in which the tyrant Hiero and the poet Simonides discuss the advantages and disadvantages of exercising tyranny. Included are a translation of the dialogue from its original Greek, a critique of Strauss s commentary by the French philosopher Alexandre Kojeve, and the complete correspondence between the two.
This revised and expanded edition introduces important corrections throughout and expands Strauss s restatement of his position in light of Kojeve s commentary to bring it into conformity with the text as it was originally published in France."
