Course Description

This seminar will deal with an early collection of Emerson essays published under the title of Nature, Addresses and Lectures (vol. I of the Complete Edition). These essays cover a wide range of topics from Nature, Beauty and Language to Transcendentalism. Together, they express Emerson’s manifesto for a New Age in America and the world. Some of the texts are very well known, others help us to discover Emerson as a surprisingly relevant critic of his (and our) time. Some of the lesser known texts will allow seminar participants to do some pioneering work on Emerson.

Reading List

The text will be made available in the Copy shop as of the end of August.
