Timothy W. Burns is is Professor and Graduate Program Director of Political Science at Baylor University. His books include Philosophy, History, and Tyranny: Reexamining the Debate between Leo Strauss and Alexandre Kojève (coedited with Bryan-Paul Frost), also published by SUNY Press.
"Timothy Burns's Leo Strauss on Democracy, Technology, and Liberal Education is one of the best studies yet of the thought of Leo Strauss. The appeal of Burns's book is that it takes up Strauss's reflections on our modern civilizational crisis. It aims to show how Strauss can help us understand the deepest sources of that crisis and how we might navigate if not overcome it." — Pietas
