Novus Ordo Seclorum

The Intellectual Origins of the Constitution

By Forrest McDonald
Narrated by Daniel Laurence / 9 hours 41 minutes

The title, taken from the Great Seal of the United States (which is seen on the reverse side of the dollar bill), means "a new order for the ages." In this major new interpretation of the framing of the US Constitution, Forrest McDonald brilliantly explains the philosophical origins from which this "new order" was born. McDonald deftly recreates the intellectual world of the amazing fifty-five men whose genius and passion gave to us the United States Constitution. He explains their understanding of law, history, political philosophy, and political economy, and how these perspectives played out in the Constitutional Convention. Above all this ideology, he shows how the Framers were guided by their own experience, wisdom, and common sense.
