Wilderness Press Meditations of Ralph Waldo Emerson
Here's what other sites are saying:
Ralph Waldo Emerson's groundbreaking 1844 "Nature" essay influenced thinkers as disparate as Nietzsche, Thoreau, and Darwin, and his later writings seem to anticipate future discoveries in physics and psychology, as well as biology. Meditations of Ralph Waldo Emerson is a journey into the mind and heart of this great 19th century author, poet, and philosopher whose writings remain relevant and inspiring today.In this compact book, 60 selections from 30 years of his writings reveal the essence of Emerson's spiritual vision. Like his friends John Muir and Henry David Thoreau, Emerson saw images of the divine in the natural world, and rather than seeking to conquer wilderness, sought inspiration from it.Complementing each passage is an inspirational quote from historical and comtemporary luminaries including Margaret Fuller, the Dalai Lama, and Jack Kerouac, and voices from Taoism, Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Sufism.Accessible EmersonGreat to bring while hikingGreat to read around the campfireEasy to carry4.25"x7"Binding - PaperEditor - Chris HylandPages - 146Publisher - Wilderness PressYear - 2004ISBN - 0-89997-352-3.
