Nature and History in American Political Development free pdf In this inaugural volume of the Alexis de Tocqueville Lectures, political scientist James Ceaser traces the way certain ideas, including nature, history, and religion- which he calls foundational ideas - have been understood and used by statesmen and public intellectuals over the course of American history, from the Puritans to the current day.Three critical commentators challenge Ceaser's arguments in several ways. They suggest that other ideas may be considered foundational, and they prod him to clarify further how foundational ideas work politically. Ceaser responds with vigor, and the result is a spirited debate about large and enduring questions in American politics.
