Our age is retrospective. It builds the sepulchres of the fathers. It writes biographies, histories, and criticism. The foregoing generations beheld God and nature face to face; we, through their eyes. Why should not we also enjoy an original relation to the universe? Why should not we have a poetry and philosophy of insight and not of tradition, and a religion by revelation to us, and not the history of theirs?
Embosomed for a season in nature, whose floods of life stream around and through us, and invite us by the powers they supply, to action proportioned to nature, why should we grope among the dry bones of the past, or put the living generation into masquerade out of its faded wardrobe? The sun shines to-day also. There is more wool and flax in the fields. There are new lands, new men, new thoughts. Let us demand our own works and laws and worship.
In enumerating the values of nature and casting up their sum, I shall use the word in both senses; — in its common and in its philosophical import. In inquiries so general as our present one, the inaccuracy is not material; no confusion of thought will occur. Nature, in the common sense, refers to essences unchanged by man; space, the air, the river, the leaf. Art is applied to the mixture of his will with the same things, as in a house, a canal, a statue, a picture.
But his operations taken together are so insignificant, a little chipping, baking, patching, and washing, that in an impression so grand as that of the world on the human mind, they do not vary the result.
Table of Contents
Ameriški pisatelj, esejist in filozof Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) velja za glasnika duha in samo-zavesti mlade ameriške nacije, s svojimi pogledi na duhovnost, moralno celovitost človeka in njegovo sobivanje z naravo pa je vplival na cele generacije pisateljev in filozofov.
Emerson, ki je bil najprej učitelj in unitarijanski pastor, je zaslovel kot predavatelj in pisec esejev, navdihoval pa se je pri evrop-ski idejni tradiciji, zlasti Platonovi in Kantovi filozofiji, in tudi večkrat obiskal Evropo.
V novejšem času so njegove ideje prevzela in na novo popularizirala new age gibanja.
