Templeton’s conclusion summarises each chapter and the key strands that run through the entire book, but also offers the beginning of an assessment of how these same ideas go on to influence the work of later, and perhaps better-known authors, such as Mark Twain, William Falkner, Tennessee Williams, and Eudora Welty. It also demonstrates the continuing power of such ideas in our contemporary political rhetoric and makes the case for continuing to think about cultural artefacts in the light of Jefferson and his philosophies.
