Abstract:   (594 Views)
The twentieth century, with two bloody global wars and numerous killings, brought thinking about the West's new crisis about to the center of thought, a crisis whose backgrounds, according to some, should be sought in the existing political thought. Leo Strauss was among the philosophers who attempted to present a plan of a Western crisis or, in his words, a new-era crisis from the perspective of political philosophy. In this article, we are going to discuss his views on the three axes of the separation of philosophy and science, the modern idea of ​​the progression, and declination of political philosophy, and illustrate the reasons of his inclination to Farabi's philosophy and his influenced philosopher, Ibne-moimon. In addition to textual references and exegetical interpretations, content criticisms are expressed in the form of footnotes. Strauss's special look at Islamic philosophy can help us understand the political dimensions of Farabi's thoughts, and show how one can understand the leading pattern of the crisis of his time in the light of philosophical wisdom of the past. This important issue can be done through the refreshing Strauss's thinking and, in particular, observing the content of Farabi's philosophy about non-divine medina.
