Includes "The Over-Soul" (1841, written before Nietzsche was even born--1844).

"Man is a stream whose source is hidden. Always our being is descending into us from we know not whence." [133] "When I watch that flowing river...I see that I am a pensioner, not a cause but a surprised spectator of this ethereal water." [134] ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0766182126, Paperback)

At the time of Emerson's death, he was recognized as the foremost writer and thinker of his country; but this recognition had come only gradually. The candor and the vigor of his thinking had led him often to champion unpopular causes, and during his earlier years of authorship his departures form Unitarian orthodoxy were viewed with hostility and alarm. The spirit and ideas which constitute the essence of his teaching are fully expressed in the essays contained in this volume. Contents: American Scholar; An Address; Man the Reformer; Self-Reliance; Compensation; Friendship; Heroism; The Over-Soul; Circles; The Poet; Character; Manners; Gifts; Nature; Politics; New England Reformers; Worship; Beauty.
