Jawed Syed Transcendentalists View Of God The moral values of Transcendentalists were relative to nature. They believed nature promotes vigorous attempts at personal success and a love for the people around one self. They thought the key to success for people was found in their ability to improve themselves mentally. They also applauded independence and believed a person could never stop growing mentally. Transcendentalists Values The transcendentalists believed in God, however they did not agree with organized religion. They believed in individualistic celebration or worship of the divinity of the human being. They did not believe in Trinity (the belief of the Holy Spirit, Jesus, and God). Transcendentalists respected Jesus, but some of them such as Emerson in his Divinity School Addressed and attacked the miracle stories in the Gospels as pious myths.
Transcendentalists believed divine truth could be known intuitively. A man finds truth within himself using his thoughts and views as guidance. How Transcendentalists Found Truth Every Society is in conspiracy against the manhood of everyone of its members. Society is basically a company in which every member gives up his freedom and culture for the sake of his own good. Transcendentalists View On Society The Transcendentalists' education movement bought us tax-supported, protestant based, free primary schools that are available to all students. Transcendentalists believe man is naturally good, even divine because of his divine intellect. Divine intellect is part of god in each man, understanding what is right and good, and also wrong. They believe the inherent of man and nature.
Transcendentalists View On Mankind Transcendentalists View On Education OPINION In our opinion, it can be argued if Transcendentalists have either a pessimistic of optimistic view of life. On the pessimistic side of the debate, they have a negative view on society believing it takes away the freedom and culture of the individuals who are a part of it, they also believe men are never smart enough. On the optimistic side, they believe men is divine and naturally good. KALIEY - VEIWS OF GOD
JAWED SYED - VIEWS OF MAN KIND Everyone's Work Transcendentalism began as a protest against the general state of culture and society, but more specifically, the state of intellectualism at Harvard and the doctrine of the Unitarian church taught at Harvard Divinity School. Among transcendentalists' main beliefs was an ideal spiritual state that 'transcends' the physical and practical and is only realized through the individual's intuition, rather than through the doctrines of established religions. In other words, they believed success began with an individuals knowledge not with the knowledge of a religion. Transcendentalists Views On Work and Worldly Success This knowledge comes through intuition and imagination not through logic or the senses. People can trust themselves to be their own authority on what is right. A transcendentalist is a person who accepts these ideas not as religious beliefs but as a way of understanding life relationships." Transcendentalists Authority Emily Dickinson
