Smith's Princeton Lectures on Moral and Political Philosophy, Volume 2
Volume 2, of Samuel Stanhope Smith's "Lectures on Moral and Political Philosophy." Smith served as President of the College of New Jersey (Princeton), from 1795 until 1812 and as Vice President (1789-95). Before that, he held several successive professorial posts there, as Professor, Moral Philosophy and Theology (1783-1812)and Professor, Moral Philisophy ( 1779-83)which extended his influence over the late Colonial period, and well into the early Constitutional era. If you want to know what was taught to those who lead this country to Independence, in effect to read one of the "Owners Manual" for the Unites States of America, this book is the place to start. I have created a reprint from a rare original 1812 copy, with the addition of a Sketch of Smith's life by John Maclean, tenth President of Princeton. Volume 1 is in process. For my other Princeton related titles, just search in LULU the word: nassau-hall or: princeton.
