The study of Masters and Disciples can remind us of an easily forgotten truth. Namely, that political theory, despite it self-understanding as an activity devoted to the life of the mind, shows itself entirely to be a "human, all too human" endeavor that cannot free itself from the failings, fears, deams and sublime impulses of sometimes conscious beings who come into existence only to pass away againbeings who mementarily seek clarity in a universe that poses infinite questions and provides no ready answers.
