Self-Evident : Discovering the Ideas and Events That Made the Declaration of Independence Possible

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


America’s Declaration of Independence is one of the most important statements on human freedom ever published. We laud Thomas Jefferson for penning the document’s flowing prose, but most of its lofty themes did not spring anew from his mind. Instead, he relied on the powerful concepts evoked by the Enlightenment, ancient Greek and Latin writings, and what he termed the “harmonizing sentiments of the day.”

There is much less harmonizing in twenty-first century America. Although united in name, divisions abound, in part because we have forgotten the core messages written in our nation’s birth certificate. Self-Evident returns the discussion to the foundational rights and Enlightenment beliefs of mankind’s place in history. It does this by examining the primary sources and key events that united a nation. In a world with instant access to endless entertainments and divisive arguments, Self-Evident will guide you back to the ideas that extended liberty across the globe.
