about this book

In this beautifully distilled version of Emerson's principal spiritual essays, Whelan makes the down-to-earth wisdom of Emerson accessible to contemporary readers. Emerson reminds us of the traditional virtues that have, to our immeasurable loss, become all too rare. If anything can restore these virtues to our lives and to the conscience of our nation, it is Emerson's vision of a world in which the truth is apparent in every being, substance and event.
