Revolutionary Ideas Rephrased for TodayIn Everyday Emerson, author Sam Torode rephrases the works of Ralph Waldo Emerson in contemporary language. The goal is to make Emerson's wisdom applicable to our daily lives, showing that Transcendentalism isn't a relic of the past--it's a way of thinking and seeing the world that's still valid and vital. This book covers Emerson's pathbreaking early lectures, featuring full paraphrases of "The American Scholar," "The Divinity School Address," "The Transcendentalist," and more. It also includes paraphrased excerpts from Emerson's speeches advocating for social reform, the abolition of slavery, and women's rights. Sam Torode's introduction and notes provide an overview of Emerson's life and major themes, and explore the relevance of his philosophy today. Everyday Emerson can be read on its own, or as an aid to studying the original works. The Kindle e-book is FREE with purchase of the paperback, with Amazon Matchbook.
