Beschreibung

Emerson's ideas are alive and well and very much with us today. Consider that Emerson, now an establishment figure, was a rebel in his time. He could find no relevance in established religion. But, unlike others, he set out to reform it. Many of his ideas now seem obvious and as American as apple pie. But until he spelled them out, no one had thought that Nature was God speaking to man or that wisdom and knowledge flowed from an active not just a contemplative life - or that society might be hostile to new ideas just out of cussedness rather than conviction. His ideas anticipated Thoreau and Whitman, and this collection of his thoughts puts us in touch with the person who hatched many of the ideas that today are as much a part of us as the air we breathe.Essays included:
"The American Scholar"

"Self-Reliance"

"A Divinity School Address"

"Love"

"Friendship"

"Prudence"

"The Transcendentalist"

"Compensation"

"Spiritual Laws"
