Transcript of Transcendentalists

Transcendentalists Ralph Emerson talks about individualism ,and how important it is to think for our self's rather than accepting other's people's ideas. By our self's we have a unique voice and opinion. Also that we should say our opinions or views about something, even though we may be rejected or ignored. We should also trust our self's and learn to let go. Self-Reliance To Transcendentalists God is their Oversoul, the soul of the universe. The Transcendentalists were not christians, they view God as the absolute truth. What is their view of God? What are their values? How do they define truth? Do they view man as good, evil, or
somewhere in between? The see every man or rather every life form as neither God, nor evil, nor anything in between. They see them as Eternal Soul, part and parcel of God, the absolute truth. Do they have an optimistic or pessimistic
view of life? What are their views of work and worldly
success? What is their view of society? What is their view of education? The transcendentalists usually look up to the men and women who have already achieved transcendence for guidance. Those who pass the message of God without damaging the message, they become the authority automatically. Who is their authority? The Transcendentalists values for individualism can be seen in "Self-Reliance'' by Ralph Waldo Emerson. It could be argued that education is the heart of American Transcendentalists. All of the major transcendentalists--Emerson, Thoreau, Fuller, Palmer, Alcott, Brownson, Very and more--spent years in the classroom as teachers, and all had found traditional education to be inadequate and stultifying. They define truth as something that is in other words "inborn'' and that knowledge of truth was intuitive. Transcendentalists view work as something important and necessary, and worldly success as philosophically significant. Since there goal is simply Transcendence, hence if the society helps them in that, they take it up and if the society obstructs their goal they give it up. BY what they were rebelling against, what they saw as the current situation and therefore as what they were trying to be different from. These people believed, it was time for literary independence. And went about creating literature, essays, novels, philosophy, poetry, and other writing. "What Is Transcendentalism?" What Is Transcendentalism? N.p., n.d.
