Sample text

In reaction to debate with such radicals as Condorcet, Turgot, and Tracy, Adams clarified the limits of his understanding of Enlightenment, albeit by negative reference. If Adams’s immersion in the new Scottish learning added depth to his Enlightenment, his rejection of radical French thought gave it focus and definition. 1 A Youthful Enlightenment Like all acolytes of Enlightenment, the young John Adams reveled in the accomplishments of modern science. The ancients of classical Greece and Rome might lay claim to priority in poetry and oratory, but when it came to the mathematical sciences of physics and astronomy, modern learning seized the laurel.

The next contributions to biographical literature on Adams were the memorial orations delivered after Adams’s and Jefferson’s deaths in 1826, treating them together. Later orators discussed Adams in addressing the shift from the founding generation to the generation of those charged with preserving the founders’ legacy. The most valuable oration of this group, delivered on January 4, 1859 in Boston, was the work of the Unitarian clergyman, author, and abolitionist Theodore Parker (1810–1860). Parker’s illuminating miniature biography shows rare sensitivity to Adams’s psychology.

Americans regarded the news that these two great men had died on the same day, the fiftieth anniversary of the Declaration, as providential – a sign that the torch was passing from the Revolutionary generation to their successors. 2 The Biographers Scholarship on John Adams falls into three categories – editions of his writings and papers; biographies and character studies (books focusing on key themes of the subject’s psychology or personal qualities); and monographs studying his constitutional or political thought or key periods or themes in his life and thought.
