Klappentext

Excerpt from A Discourse: Concerning the Influence of America on the Mind; Being the Annual Oration; Delivered Before the American Philosophical Society, at the University in Philadelphia, on the 18th October, 1823, by Their Appointment, and Published by Their Order Appointed to deliver the annual discourse of the American Philosophical Society, I propose to sketch the philosophical condition of this country, and explain the in uence of America on the mind. The task 13 not an easy one, owing to the extreme dispersion of the materials. Elsewhere intellectual improvements are collected in the accessible reposi tories of a metropolis, absorbing most of the intelli gence of a whole nation, and ourishing with arti ficial culture long applied. In the United States we have no such emporium the arts and sciences are but of recent and spontaneous growth, scatter ed over extensive regions and a sparse population.
