Matthew Stewart talked about his book, Nature’s God: The Heretical Origins of the American Republic, in which he looks at America’s founders and their philosophical underpinnings for the birth of the nation. In his book, the author contends that the desire for a secular state played a central role in the removal of British rule, and examines how deism, a belief that reason and nature explain the workings of the world, was embraced by many of the Founding Fathers. Mr. Stewart spoke at Harvard Book Store in Cambridge, Massachusetts. close
