Best Answer

De Tocqueville thought very highly of American democracy, describing its potential in perpetuation of the achievement of "human greatness" in his masterpiece, Democracy in America(1835). De Tocqueville viewed philosophies with a slight disdain because of their impracticality, but in the United States, he wrote that it exists as one of the most developed countries that does not preoccupy itself with "philosophic thought." De Tocqueville cites this as the reason for their achievements in politics, democracy and "human greatness."
