Three important philosophic elements come together at the time of the American Revolution: 1) the influence of Nature; 2) the evolution of Christian Faith, and 3) the reliance on Human Reason. In this writing assignment, explain each of these elements, and then argue for or against the claim that these elements are synthesized in the Declaration of Independence.
Your writing should have four parts. One part should explain the influence Nature has on the formation of American thinking and literature. One part should objectively summarize the influence Christian Faith has on the formation of American thinking and literature. One part should explain the practical reliance on Human Reason to solve problems illustrated in American thinking and literature. The last part should argue for or against the claim that these elements are IN the Declaration, that they are “part of the argument” … cite specific evidence.
Your writing should be about 350 or so words in length. Remember to follow MLA format, clean up and organize your writing, and cite your evidence using MLA in-text style.
