Summary
"Drawing deeply on the study of European philosophy, Matthew Stewart pursues a genealogy of the philosophical ideas from which America's revolutionaries drew their inspiration, all ... researched and documented and enlivened with storytelling ... Along the way, he uncovers the true meanings of 'Nature's God, ' 'self-evident, ' and many other phrases crucial to our understanding of the American experiment but now widely misunderstood"--Dust jacket flap
