Product Details

Meet the Author

Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882) was an American lecturer, philosopher, essayist, and poet, best remembered for leading the Transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of published essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the United States.

Emerson wrote on a number of subjects, never espousing fixed philosophical tenets, but developing certain ideas such as individuality, freedom, the ability for man to realize almost anything, and the relationship between the soul and the surrounding world. Emerson's "nature" was more philosophical than naturalistic; "Philosophically considered, the universe is composed of Nature and the Soul."

Emerson's work not only influenced his contemporaries, such as Walt Whitman and Henry David Thoreau, but would continue to influence thinkers and writers in the United States and around the world down to the present. Notable thinkers who recognize Emerson's influence include Nietzsche and William James, Emerson's godson.

In his book The American Religion, Harold Bloom repeatedly refers to Emerson as "The prophet of the American Religion," which in the context of the book refers to indigenously American and gnostic-tinged religions such as Mormonism and Christian Science, which arose largely in Emerson's lifetime. In The Western Canon, Harold Bloom compares Emerson to Michel de Montaigne: "The only equivalent reading experience that I know is to reread endlessly in the notebooks and journals of Ralph Waldo Emerson, the American version of Montaigne."

    Truly Classic Works by an American Original

    Ralph Waldo Emerson was the first American philosopher to gain a worldwide reputation, and his philosophy is distinctly rooted in the rugged wilderness and landscape of early America.

    These are truly classic works that I will cherish for years to come.

    Wisdom, Truth, and Beauty

    It's all here. A thoughtful, intelligent man recorded his thoughts and captures history. One could do worse than to cancel Comcast and copy and recopy Emerson's essays to grove one's mind with the timeless insights and wisdom they contain.

    I'm thrilled to have this volume accessible to me now at all times in my Nook. I recommend it for everyone.

    My favorite quote: "Real happiness, genius and greatness are achieved only by discovering and remaining true to the inner, primeval and eternal voice of intuition. ...build therefore your own world, and as fast as you conform your life to the pure idea in your mind, that world will unfold its great proportions."

    Classic

    There's nothing better than remembering that life's simplicities are what makes it capable to allow the happiness to take root.
