In NDPR, Michael Zank reviews Richard Velkley's Heidegger, Strauss, and the Premises of Philosophy.
The circle of young thinkers around Bultmann and Heidegger all aimed for the same thing that Heidegger modeled, though imperfectly: a retrieval of the original voice of philosophy before it was distorted (in a neutral, acoustic sense of the term) by revelation. For Gadamer, also part of this circle, this became a question of method. For Strauss, it was always a question of philosophy and politics or, as Velkley points out, a question of understanding the "theological-political" problem.
