9780195059489: Philosophy, The Federalist, and the Constitution

Here, Morton White presents the first synoptic view of the major philosophical ideas in The Federalist. Using the tools of philosophy and intellectual history, White extracts and examines the interlocking theory of knowledge, doctrine of normative ethics, psychology of motivation, and even metaphysics and theology, all of which were used in different degrees by the founding fathers in defense of the Constitution.

About the Author:

Morton White is at Princeton University (Emeritus).

Review:


"Exhibits a strong intellect at work on an important task: to determine the grounding, in terms of technical philosophy, of The Federalist. It is a formidable achievement of rich scholarship that is probably definitive."--American Historical Review


"[An] excellent book that offers a sophisticated presentation of the philosophy contained in The Federalist....All serious students of the early republic will find White's book another valuable, clearly written, illuminating contribution to understanding our past."--American Political Science Review


"We have waited two hundred years for someone to organize and clarify the philosophical ideas behind The Federalist Papers. Morton White's brilliant and illuminating reexamination of our greatest political treatise is ideal reading for the bicentennial year of the Constitution."--Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.


"White has provided lawyers, historians, and political theorists with a valuable resource with which to appreciate the full range of Publius' wisdom."--Harvard Law Review


"Thoroughly researched and carefully argued, this is an important book."--Library Journal


"[White] fashions a philosophical analysis that is both substantial and convincing."--William and Mary Quarterly
