About the book:

A new, wide-ranging selection of Ralph Waldo Emersons most influential writings, this edition captures the essence of American Transcendentalism and illustrates the breadth of one of Americas greatest philosophers and poets.

The writings featured here show Emerson as a protester against social conformity, a lover of nature, an activist for the rights of women and slaves, and a poet of great sensitivity. As explored in this volume, Emersonian thought is a unique blend of belief in individual freedom and in humility before the power of nature. I become a transparent eyeball, Emerson wrote in Nature, I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part or particle of God. Written over a century ago, this passage is a striking example of the passion and originality of Emersons ideas, which continue to serve as a spiritual center and an ideological base for modern thought.
