Allen Jayne analyzes the ideology of the Declaration of Independence -- and its implications -- by going back to the sources of Jefferson's ideas: Bolingbroke, Kames, Reid, and Locke. He concludes that the Declaration must be read as an attack on two claims of absolute authority: that of government over its subjects and of religion over the minds of men. Today's world is more secular than Jefferson's, and the importance of philosophical theology in eighteenth-century critical thought must be recognized in order to understand fully and completely the Declaration's implications. Jayne addresses this need by putting religion back into the discussion.

This is one of four volumes on the Declaration of Independence. Formatted in 365 essays of about 400 words each, Rolwing examines nearly all the major writers on our Basic Charter, most of whom repudiate it. He focuses on their manifold criticisms and rejections, reveals their multiple distortions and misunderstandings, rebukes their self-contradictions and inconsistencies, and pities their general theo-phobia. He argues that while America was Founded almost completely by Protestant Christians (the only two “deists” were not even “deists”), what was Founded was formally only a philosophical product, not a faith based or Christian one, although the philosophy had been more Catholic than Protestant. Rolwing makes a great deal of American history, law, ethics, politics, philosophy, and theology easily accessible to the average reader. Each 5 minute essay can give you a high for the whole day. “Certainly the Declaration is worth many an hour explaining and defending it. Mr. Rolwing seeks to make the problems brought up about the document capable of being understood by both scholar and ordinary citizen.” –Fr. James Schall, S.J.

Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Philosophie - Philosophie des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts, Note: 1,6, Universität Paderborn, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Staatsgründungen bekommen im Zuge des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts eine neue Legitimationsgrundlage, weil das Gottesgnadentum als Legitimations-modell in dieser sich radikal verändernden Gesellschaft nicht mehr ausreicht. Diese radikale Änderung äußert sich darin, dass die gesellschaftlichen Glaubensätze nicht mehr ausschließlich aus der Religion oder dem Aberglauben bezogen, sondern vermehrt rational hergeleitet werden. Diese neue Form der Welterschließung erfährt im 17. und 18. Jahrhundert ihren Höhepunkt, welches im Deutungskonzept der Aufklärung ihren Ausdruck findet. So entstehen aus den Erfahrungen der Denker dieser Zeit philosophische Überlegungen, in denen das „divine right“ als Herrschaftskonzept immer mehr angezweifelt wird. Mit dieser Konzeption rivalisiert die Vertragstheorie als neues Herrschaftsmodell und setzt sich in den folgenden Jahrhunderten durch. Damit begründet der Kontraktualismus das heutige Verständnis der Staatsorganisation. Die britischen Kolonien in Amerika, in denen diese Überlegungen zur Unabhängigkeit führen, sind neben der französischen Revolution das prominenteste Beispiel dafür. Allerdings eben mit der Eigenheit, dass aus den britischen Kolonien kein veränderter, sondern ein neuer Staat hervorgeht. In diesem Sinne ist auch die Arbeit angelegt. Der Begriff „Staatsgründung“ wird hier wörtlich verstanden und thematisiert deshalb das Beispiel der Vereinigten Staaten. Thomas Jefferson, der Verfasser der „Declaration of Independence” , schreibt im Jahr 1825 rückblickend in einem Brief, dass es sein Ziel war „not to find out new principles, or new arguments, never before thought of, not merely to say things which had never been said before; but to place before mankind the common sense of the subject, in terms so plain and firm as to command their assent.” Was aber ist dieser „common sense of the subject” und wichtiger; welchen Ideen liegt er zugrunde? Welche Ideenkonzepte sind bereits so stark zu dieser Zeit verbreitet und anerkannt, dass sie ausgehend von einem Gemeinsinn in eine Erhebung resultieren? Diese Ideen liegen unterschiedlichen Denkern zugrunde, die sich hauptsächlich auf die Gelehrten des angelsächsischen Raumes beziehen.

No phrase in American letters has had a more profound influence on church-state law, policy, and discourse than Thomas Jefferson’s “wall of separation between church and state,” and few metaphors have provoked more passionate debate. Introduced in an 1802 letter to the Danbury, Connecticut Baptist Association, Jefferson’s “wall” is accepted by many Americans as a concise description of the U.S. Constitution’s church-state arrangement and conceived as a virtual rule of constitutional law. Despite the enormous influence of the “wall” metaphor, almost no scholarship has investigated the text of the Danbury letter, the context in which it was written, or Jefferson’s understanding of his famous phrase. Thomas Jefferson and the Wall of Separation Between Church and State offers an in-depth examination of the origins, controversial uses, and competing interpretations of this powerful metaphor in law and public policy.
