Here is a quote from The Lacanian Delusion that describes Strauss with stinging accuracy!

“His style ,then, is specifically designed to ward off simplification, but more generally , to defy any translation that would gloss over the words at issue and in need of explanation, words that should therefore be left to their diamond like indivisibility or, in the final analysis,their foliage like obscurity.”

The Lacanian Delusion by François Roustang Oxford University Press 1990  page 19


About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
