The digitization of audio recordings and edited transcriptions of course lectures given by philosopher Leo Strauss.

Leo Strauss is becoming increasingly recognized as one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century. He was also an extraordinary teacher. Fortunately, an extensive record of Strauss's teaching exists in the form of audio tapes of his courses and transcripts made from those audio tapes. The University of Chicago requests a grant of $350,000 over two years to assist its Leo Strauss Center in preserving and publishing in digital form the audio record of Strauss's teaching.
