Abstracts
The author deals with the origin and the significance of the interest in Jefferson in the contemporary American culture. That interest is mostly rooted in the contemporary American romantic national ideology. Its central component is the myth of the revolutionary creation of the American nation carried out by the founding fathers, a few extremely individualistic, heroic personages. Among them, Jefferson is considered to be the most romantic and individualist embodiment of that myth. The author suggests that the particular way in which American nation was built enables Americans and its numerous cultural minorities to recreate their national identity by reinteprating Jefferson.
