Self Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson

From the spiritual to the economic, Emerson's Self-Reliance details the various aspects of a man's ability to rely on himself for survival. This 19th century essay resolutely supports Emerson's life-long belief in individualism and encourages mankind to pass over practices like conformity and false consistency for following intuition and instincts instead. Rather than promoting ideas of anti-society, Emerson asserts self-reliance is a starting point for a more efficient society, and not an end goal.

A unique view on the human condition that eerily applies to the society we live in to this day. I highly recommend it for somebody who is willing to seriously contemplate things outside of their comfort zones...

This book was very ironically written while the author was being waited on hand and foot by a pair of maids.
