The transcript of Strauss's course on Nietzsche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra (spring 1959) has been accepted for print publication by the University of Chicago Press for fall 2017. It will be the first of several course transcripts that the Press will publish. Once the Nietzsche volume appears in print, we plan to host a one-day conference on Strauss on Nietzsche here on campus.  In addition, Xenophon (1963) has been added to the website in PDF format.
