In a series of essays that examine Thomas Jefferson’s own writings, Holowchak investigates the always profound and often provocative ideas of this founding father. Dutiful Correspondent explores Thomas Jefferson as a philosopher in his own right. Holowchak expands our view of Jefferson by examining his own words on issues such as race, politics, ethics, education, and the intersection of philosophy and science.

In The Press

This profound and original study stands out in the crowded field of Jefferson studies by considering the great man as a serious – if not systematic – philosopher. While scholars have shied in the past for various reasons from examining Thomas Jefferson as a philosopher, M. Andrew Holowchak makes a first and remarkably successful attempt that brings to the fore significant and heretofore unrecognized aspects in Jefferson's thought. By addressing scholars across many disciplines, Dutiful Correspondent is set to spawn an important conversation among students of the sage of Monticello.
