I am doing some research and at this point I don't know who or where to continue researching for answers. (Scholars who might have the answers are too busy to answer my emails--evidently.)
Anyone who knows anything about this or knows of a book or class to recommend, let me know.
1) The American Founding Fathers stated that some things are "self-evident." Would that mean that self-evident principles are self-evident to all cultures and peoples for all time?
2) How do "self-evident" propositions compare to the Natural Law? Would the Founding Fathers believe they are the same? Are they basically the same? Or are they very different and why?
3) Would the Ten Commandments fall under laws that are "self-evident" or the Natural Law? Why or why not?
