The departmentalism of yankee universities has no doubt a lot to suggest it. It exhibits that exuberance isn't a adequate sub­ stitute for scholarship, that, for greater or for worse, each pupil at the present time has to be whatever of a consultant. but if any nice author and nice philosopher reaches out and grasps the full of human lifestyles, the examine of his paintings transcends specialization. And whereas exuberance would possibly not substitute scholarship, it could accompany it. so much of my paintings has been performed within the heritage of political philosophy. i've got dared to overstep departmental barriers, simply because i think that Shakespeare has whatever to claim to political philosophy. it's not that i am the 1st to precise this view. even if I show it good or badly, I shall no longer be the final. i would like to thank Leo Strauss, my instructor. He has learn the manus­ cript and given me the good thing about his perception and judgment. i would like to thank Richard Kennington, who has taken loads time from his personal paintings to remark meticulously and constructively in this paintings as on different issues i've got written. His aid has been beneficiant, and my appreciation is deep. i need to, particularly, thank my colleague, Adolph Lowe. He has perused this examine, a lot of it in different types. via lengthy walks in Manchester, Vermont, we've got mentioned my paintings and his reviews. frequently his reviews were compelling. i will be able to remorse in basic terms that i'm thoroughly unqualified to reciprocate.
