Leo Strauss, Carl Schmitt and the Nature of Politics

Resumen

The purpose of this paper is to explain Leo Strauss' criticism of Carl Schmitt's seminal The Concept of the Political, and the way it is able to account for the further development of Straussian thought. In order to do so, the basis of the Schmittian criticism of liberalism is investigated, emphasizing its relation to the work of Thomas Hobbes; and his conception of morality is addressed afterwards. The author attempts to understand why, according to Strauss, Schmitt's critique of liberal thought is insufficient, insofar as it is unable to overcome the horizon of liberalism.
