Abstract
By the very nature of its subject-matter, the present study is both historical and literary.|Historians and political philosophers without number have examined The Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson and discussed endlessly the principles which it contains. Innumerable educators and sociologists have concerned themselves with the ideas in The American Scholar by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Indeed, thinkers of every variety have Interested themselves in these two paramount documents because their contents prove them to be genuine instruments of American nationalism. In short, each of these contributions is a milestone in American history.
