American philosopher and academic Allan Bloom.

Allan Bloom

(1933 - 1992)

Allan Bloom acquired his faith in the redemptive powers of classical literature while studying under Leo Strauss at the University of Chicago in the 1950s. His best-selling book The Closing of the American Mind, once called “the first shot of the culture wars,” was praised as “an unparalleled reflection” by the New York Times.
