by

Self-Reliance, and Other Essays (Dover Thrift Editions) Cover

 

Staff Pick

Self-Reliance and Other Essays contains selections from both Emerson's First and Second Series, plus the Harvard Divinity School Address. This little gem of a book offers a fine sampling of the transcendental idealism and reliance on the individual advocated by Emerson. "Nothing at last is sacred," he claimed, "but the integrity of your own mind."

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Essayist, poet and philosopher, Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) propounded a transcendental idealism emphasizing self-reliance, self-culture and individual expression. The six essays and one address included in this volume, selected from Essays, First Series (1841) and Essays, Second Series (1844), offer a representative sampling of his views outlining that moral idealism as well as a hint of the later skepticism that colored his thought. In addition to the celebrated title essay, the others included here are "History," "Friendship," "The Over-Soul," "The Poet" and "Experience," plus the well-known and frequently read Harvard Divinity School Address.
