Summary
Few movements in American social and intellectual history have been as influential as the cluster of ideas which have come to be called Transcendentalism. From Ralph Waldo Emerson's "self-reliant soul" and Henry David Thoreau's "different drummer" to modern ideas about individualism and democracy, Transcendentalism has had a powerful impact on central aspects of American life. The course begins with a study Emerson and Thoreau, the two figures at the heart of the movement, and then explores a wide range of engaging individuals: educational activists, literary figures and social reformers, all of whose ideas contributed to reforms and ways of thinking that are still present today
