Emerson: The Ideal in America
The first video biography of "America's Founding Thinker," Ralph Waldo Emerson. Emerson's belief in "the infinitude of the private man" still resonates with spiritual seekers today. Most people know Emerson's essay, "Self-Reliance," but there is much more to the fascinating life of the man and his circle, which included Henry David Thoreau, Walt Whitman, and Margaret Fuller. You will never look at Emerson--or yourself--quite the same way again.
"...a well-told, imaginatively presented and uplifting account of Emerson's life and the development of his ideas."
