Self-reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson Summary

"Every great man is a unique". R.W Emerson told us that Self-confidence is always about independence : "What I must do is all that concerns me, not what the people think. This rule, equally arduous in actual and in intellectual life, may serve for the whole distinction between greatness and meanness. It is the harder because you will always find those who think they know what is your duty better than you know it. It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude."

Self-Reliance, and Other Essays, (Series One) by Ralph Waldo Emerson Summary

This first collection of Emerson's essays has influenced a host of thinkers and intellectuals since its first appearance in 1841. 'Self-Reliance' is undoubtedly the collection's most famous essay, a piece in which Emerson argues that one must put a wholehearted trust in the power of one's own intuition, and not hold to orthodox opinions merely because the mass of people believe them to be true. But the prestige surrounding this work has tended to obscure the breadth of Emerson's vision: in the twelve essays in 'Series One' he invites us to consider a wide range of topics, from the true nature of 'Friendship', 'Heroism' and 'Love', to the high-flown philosophy of 'Spiritual Laws' and 'The Over-Soul'.

Self-Reliance and Other Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson Summary

2018 Reprint of Seelctions from Emerson's Essays: First Series [1841] and Second Series [1844]. Essayist, poet, and philosopher, Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) was a founder of American Transcendalism, a philosophy emphasizing self-reliance, introspection and the importance of nature for the human being.

The six essays selected from Essays, First Series (1841) and Essays, Second Series (1844) offer a sampling of his views outlining his moral idealism as well as a hint of the later skepticism that colored his thought.

Nature and Other Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson Summary

A collection of essays from the father of the American transcendentalism, including “Nature,” “Self-Reliance,” “Love,” and “Art.” Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous essay “Nature” declared that understanding nature was the key to understanding God and reality, and laid the groundwork for transcendentalism. His legacy of boldly questioning the doctrine of his day and connecting with nature will resonate with today’s readers in search of meaning and enlightenment. Essays include “Nature” (1836) and Emerson’s first series, published in 1841: “History,” “Self-Reliance,” “Compensation,” “Spiritual Laws,” “Love,” “Friendship,” “Prudence,” “Heroism,” “The Over-Soul,” “Circles,” “Intellect,” and “Art.” Nature and Other Essays joins Gibbs Smith’s best-selling Wilderness series. Standing beside the works of his protégée Henry David Thoreau, as well as John Muir, Mark Twain, Walt Whitman, and Jack London, these essays are reissued to encourage and inspire philosophers, travelers, campers, and contemporary naturalists. Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803–April 27, 1882) was a famous lecturer, philosopher, poet, and writer. He led the transcendentalist movement of the 1800s, mentored Henry David Thoreau, and was a pioneer of multiculturalism in American writing.

Education by Ralph Waldo Emerson Summary

This volume presents the views of Ralph Waldo Emerson regarding education. It consists of his entire essay on "Education, " and several additional selections from his other writings. By no means a complete exposition of his philosophy of education, the material presents his fundamental beliefs with regard to the proper aims and methods which should be pursued in the liberal training of men and women. With rare penetration the essayist reveals the essential nature of the problems which everywhere arise in the effort to train men.In these days when we are necessarily so largely engaged in adding to our traditional education a system of specialized vocational training in the industrial, agricultural, and commercial arts, there is a danger that we shall lose our sense of proportion, forgetting the full significance of that older liberal education which is designed to equip man for the finer uses of his manhood and his citizenship.There is no better brief for a broad, human education than that presented in the writings of Emerson. Our best American apostle of culture, he notes with precision the qualities which are the measure of a truly cultivated man. With high critical power, he describes the futility and the narrowness of much that goes under the guise of human training in the schools, and ably defends the larger cause of spiritual development, despite the failures to achieve it in the classroom. When sharp competition forces us to a serious consideration of a school training for bread winning, it is well to be told that the glorified word efficiency means spiritual efficiency as much as economic competency.

Selected Writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson by Ralph Waldo Emerson Summary

'Standing on the bare ground--my head bathed by the blithe air and uplifted into infinite space--all mean egotism vanishes,' Emerson wrote in Nature, his statement of the principles of transcendentalism. 'I become a transparent eyeball.' Nature, published in 1836 when Emerson was thirty-three, is collected here with his book of observations on the English people; a famous sermon against administering communion in church; a sketch of his step-grandfather; the eulogy he delivered at the funeral of his Concord friend and neighbor Henry David Thoreau; twenty-three poems; and addresses, lectures, and essays on such subjects as slavery, self-reliance, and organized Christianity's obsession with the person of Jesus. Emerson called transcendentalism another word for idealism--'hypothesis to account for nature by other principles than those of carpentry and chemistry.' Considered intensely radical at a time when materialism and a rigid form of Christianity were ascendant, he urged Americans to 'enjoy an original relation to the universe.' These selections span Emerson's career as author and traveling lecturer, and chart his evolving thought: the concepts of the 'over-soul,' individualism without egotism, and antimaterialism; a belief in intuition, independence, and 'the splendid labyrinth of one's own perceptions.'

Société et Solitude by Ralph Waldo Emerson,Marie Dugard Summary

« Au cours de mes voyages, je me suis trouvé avec un humoriste qui avait chez lui un modelage de la Méduse de Rondanini, et qui m’assura que le nom sous lequel cette grande œuvre d’art figurait dans les catalogues était inexact ; il était convaincu que le sculpteur qui l’avait taillée la destinait à représenter la Mémoire, mère des Muses. Dans la conversation qui suivit, mon nouvel ami me fit quelques confidences extraordinaires. “Ne voyez-vous pas,” dit-il, “la punition du savoir ? Ne voyez-vous pas que, pareil au bourreau du poème de Hood, chacun de ces scholars que vous avez rencontrés à S..., dût-il être le dernier homme, guillotinerait le dernier, sauf un ?” »
