Author — An author is narrowly defined as the originator of any written work and can thus also be described as a writer. More broadly defined, an author is the person who originated or gave existence to anything, in the copyright laws of various jurisdictions, there is a necessity for little flexibility regarding what constitutes authorship.
THIS book ought to have received from us a much earlier notice. It is worthy of a much more general perusal and attentive consideration, among the thinking minds of this country, than it has obtained.
It is the work of a learned, pious and accomplished foreigner, in which, after a residence of many years among us, and excellent opportunities to become acqnainted with our people and our institutions, he seeks to represent his adopted couutry in his Father-land.
Such a book, from such a man, could scarcely fail to be worthy of very serious consideration. We cannot help feeling a curi osity to know what an enlightened German Christian, who had long ago adopted onr country as his own, would say of voL.
Such a performance could hardly fail to furnish our minds with many seeds of thought. Just such a performance we have in the book before us.
And though there are many opinions of the author, which we think few native born Americans will be likely to adopt, we commend the book to our readers, as one which they will find very snggestive on several topics, in relation to which Ameri- can minds need suggestion; topics, too, which are demanding of us speedy and earnest thought.
And we are of the opinion, that the reading of this and kindred works, from men of foreign and especially of German education, would compel not a few Americans to feel, in respect to some of the topics alluded to, the necessity of defining, at least to themselves, their own position more accurately than they have hitherto done.
He has ap- preciated, as few minds of European education have done, the one great truth, which underlies his whole subject, that the future of the worlds destiny is to be decided on American soil; that even those great social and religious conflicts, which have agitated Europe for centuries, are in all probability to have their Waterloo on this side of the Atlantic.
He who ap- preciates not this truth, lacks the key of the future. Thm vari- ous conflicting elements which have been evolved in the past ages of European history, are here placed in immediate juxta- position, with an unlimited field for their growth, and bound- less freedom of action.
Each will here manifest its own na- ture and results, on a scale grand enough for the instruction of all mankind. When DeTocqueville resolved to study America, that he might carry back a lesson to Europe, he set an example which the world of social philosophers must yet follow.
Want of room will deny us the privilege of following Dr. Schaff through the various topics which he presents. He is an American only by adoption: His book furnishes no evidence that he has He does not re- ceive the doctrines of the Declaration of Independence: He pre- fers that total separation of the Church from the State, which we are trying the author thinks without entire success to re- alize in this country, to that bondage of religion to the Gov- ernment which obtains in some countries in Europe; but has still a conception rather indefinite, we think of a system of legislation, in which the State should support the Church without enslaving it, as far better than either.
Chalmers had such a dream all his life, but died without realizing it. With such fundamental opinions, it were strange indeed, if Dr. Schaffs estimate of many things in American Society did not differ widely from our own.
There is, indeed, one subject on which Dr.
We refer to the subject of Slavery. On this subject, we suspect our author before this time sincerely wishes that certain sentiments contained in his book had never been uttered. He has chosen to take rank on this great moral question with our Union-savin.Channings Outline for Chapter 15; Ap World History.
