MR. EMERSON’S REVOLUTION
was our first public intellectual, helping define a nascent American
culture in the decades after our Revolution. He urged his countrymen,
psychologically still dependent on England, to banish false traditions
and leap forward to a new day of self-confidence, curiosity, and achievement,
all with faith in an Over Soul, or World Soul, and a tangible Moral
interests spanned the humanities and the sciences, making him insist
on their unity. As an active abolitionist and pro-women’s rights
advocate, he also revolutionized our social life. In every sphere,
he radicalized our souls. This book will illuminate Emerson’s legacy to our time. We, like him, are still a half-idealistic and half-pragmatic people.
