Über den Autor

Alexander Hamilton (January 11, 1755 or 1757 – July 12, 1804) was a founding father of the United States, celebrated for his pivotal role in the nation's early development. As a profound thinker and political theorist, Hamilton co-authored the renowned collection of essays known as 'The Federalist Papers' alongside James Madison and John Jay. These essays, originally published anonymously in 1787 and 1788 under the pseudonym 'Publius,' were instrumental in the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, expounding on the philosophy underpinning the American political system and arguing for a strong central government. Hamilton's essays in 'The Federalist Papers,' notably Numbers 1, 6-9, 11-13, 15-17, 21-36, 59-61, and 65-85, are marked by a persuasive and pragmatic tone, deep understanding of constitutional governance, and clear articulation of the checks and balances crucial to the preservation of liberty. Besides his literary accomplishment, Hamilton served as the first Secretary of the Treasury under George Washington, establishing the nation's financial system. His influence on U.S. politics extended to the interpretation of the Constitution, promotion of industrialization, and establishment of federal authority. Hamilton's legacy endures through his extensive writings, profound impact on economic policies, and visionary approach to governance.
