Abstract

An application of J. G. A. Pocock's understanding of the republican tradition based on his theory of political languages facilitates the exploration of hitherto neglected aspects of John C. Calhoun's republicanism. A Pocockean reading can reveal how republican notions such as the mechanization of virtue, the people's character, military virtue, and the virtue of the South informed Calhoun's political rhetoric.
