Ralph Waldo Emerson was an American Original. In thinking deeply about the human condition and the place of the individual in the universe, he created Transcendentalism. While it has fallen in station, as all movements do, because they are touted and expropriated by lesser lights, Emerson's thought is still capable of lifting us to our rightful station as moral actors on a fraught stage. Be warned, he is pedantic to the point of distraction and the language is dauntingly opaque. You cannot, however, read this and emerge unmoved or unchanged. Persevere. It will be worth it. As an aside, every CEO and Board member should be required to read Chapter 3: Compensation.--Submitted by Larry Graham.
