Initial Mission Statement:

A community exploring the philosophical, historical, cultural, aesthetic and operational foundations of today’s D.C. and its associated Movements.

The Stiftung Leo Strauss is located in the heart of the Imperial City. We comment on current events and personalities based on direct experience interacting with Washington, D.C. and its many institutions, policy issues, personalities and pundits.

We continue to defend empirical, rational, inclusive politics. And worry that Americans too often embrace Talleyrand’s observation that “They have learned nothing and forgotten nothing.”
