Synopsis

Considered the first significant teacher of rhetoric in America, John Witherspoon also introduced Scottish moral philosophy in America, and as president of Princeton reformed the curriculum to give emphasis to both studies. He was an active pamphleteer on religious and political issues and a signer of the Declaration of Independence.Thomas P Miller argues that Witherspoon s career exemplifies the Ciceronian ideal, and the eight selections Miller presents from the 1802 American edition of the "Works "corroborate that claim."
