Summary
The course begins with the life and career of Ralph Waldo Emerson, the single most important figure behind American Transcendentalism. Lectures will then move to a careful examination of Henry David Thoreau, Emerson's most influential disciple. From Emerson's contention that divinity resides in every person, to Thorear's defense of civil disobedience, the course will examine the details of Transcendentalism, the powerful intellectual movement these two helped to found and foster
