Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882) is best remembered for leading the Transcendentalist movement. He expressed the philosophy of Transcendentalism in his 1836 essay, Nature.

Emerson was considered one of the great lecturers of his time. He had enthusiasm and respected his audience

imageIn 1837, he gave a speech entitled The American Scholar, considered by  Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. to be America’s “Intellectual Declaration of Independence”. He was seen as a champion of individualism and expressed his thinking through dozens of essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the U.S.

Most of his important essays started life as lectures.  His first two collections of essays – Essays: First Series , were published in 1841 and Essays: Second Series in 1844.

One thought on “Universal decisions

  1. Paulo Coelho said, in his book The Alchemist, “If you truly desire something, with all your heart, all the universe conspires in your favour.” I think he read Emerson. And now I want to! 🙂
