Интеллектуальные добродетели историка политической философии: подход Лео Штрауса
The article examines Leo Strauss’s influential approach to the history of philosophy from the
standpoint of responsibilist virtue epistemology and its central concept of intellectual virtue.
This approach is based on a number of hermeneutical principles that do not form a strict
methodology for interpreting texts of the past; successful application of these principles in the
history of philosophy requires a possession of certain intellectual virtues: humility, open-
mindedness and prudence. Analysis of this unexplored “virtue-oriented” dimension of
hermeneutical approaches in the history of philosophy makes it possible to respond more
confidently to the challenges that this discipline faces today.
