154665 Demonology, Education, and Thoreau: Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Lectures and Biographical Sketches 2 HS Di 16:00 - 17:30 R. 0.406 Grünzweig
Course Description

Emerson’s Lectures and Biographical Sketches contain a large variety of lectures and essays including contributions on intellectual topics (e.g. “Education,” “The Preacher,” “The Man of Letters,” “The Scholar”) as well as on personalities Emerson considered important (e.g. Thoreau, Carlyle). Contained in Vol. X of Emerson’s Complete Works, they are a wonderful resource for cultural criticism both in Emerson’s own time and in the 21st century – including the Trump presidency.
We will use the relatively inexpensive reprint edition by Forgotten Books Classic Reprint series (can be ordered through Amazon). Please let the instructor know if you have problems obtaining the book.
