The School of Princeton

I think the theological Idealism of Jonathan Edwards, which was thoroughly stamped out by the Scottish Realism of John Witherspoon (with some help from smallpox), makes a strong case for calling Edwards and Witherspoon the Plato and Aristotle of Princeton. Perhaps someone with more knowledge of later Princeton history, and subtler photoshop skills, could match up the rest of the professorial parallels in Raphael's original.
