What does trascendentalist art look like

Self Reliance by R.W. Emerson

"At times the whole world seems to be in conspiracy to importune you with emphatic trifles. Friend, client, child, sickness, fear, want, charity, all knock at once at thy closet door, and say, - 'Come out unto us. ' But keep thy state; come not into their confusion. The power men possess to annoy me, I give them by a weak curiosity. No man can come near me but through my act. "

Widely considered as the head of the Trascendentalist movement, but, above all labels, an original thinker and outstanding human being, Emerson's ideas on the virtues of individualism and the relations person-collective shine at their best in this well known essay.

Emerson's prose, conceived as a tool to illustrate a point, has remained actual and easy to read, and his ideas remain audacious, provocative and without fail as sensible and enlightening as in the time they were first published.

The book discusses matters like building one's character, the dangers of sticking too much to consistency ("the hobgoblin of little minds", as he famously defined), and the existence of a truth that is different for each person (as opposed to a monolithic , single version "Truth"); a Truth to which each person is due their full loyalty.

One of those texts that, despite its brevity, never fails to leave you more energized and inspired after reading.

"Sometimes the whole world seems to be in a conspiracy to illuminate you with emphatic trifles. Friend, client, child, illness, fear, need, charity all knock on your closet door at the same time and say, 'Come out to us.' But keep your condition, don't get confused. The power men have to annoy me I give them through a weak curiosity. Nobody can come near me except through what I do. "

Emerson's ideas about the virtues of individualism and human-collective relationships, widely regarded as the head of the trascendentalist movement, but most of all as a trademark, an original thinker and outstanding person, exude their best in this well-known essay.

Emerson's prose, intended as a tool to illustrate a point, is still current and easy to read, and his ideas are still bold, provocative, and just as sensible and illuminating as they were when they were first published.

The book is about things like character building, the risk of clinging too much to permanence (as he made it famous for), and the existence of a truth that is different for each person (as opposed to a monolithic truth), single -Version "truth"); A truth to which every person owes his full loyalty.

One of those texts that, despite its brevity, provides you with more and more energy and inspires you after reading it.
