[Lecture One, segment 2]

H e r e w e have a thoroughly destructive critique of modern social science undertaken in a simple, unobtrusive and dialectical manner. At the end of 5 minutes, all of social science and contemporary social thought lies in ruins, to say nothing of contemporary "philosophy".

Strauss' "dialectic" is surely powerful. Yet, the rational charm of his speech does not detract in the least from the pure rationality of its substance. We can understand from these remarks in this segment why the mere name of Strauss became a terrifying anathema to all those employed within the profession of political and social science - nobody likes to be out of a job!
