This essay will be focused on the main concepts and their applications to present life of Transcendentalism, an influential movement of the XIX century, represented mainly by Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau.
As a movement, Transcendentalism was essentially based on the neo Platonists ideas, the eastern mystical beliefs and the German idealist philosophy. Its focus was on consciousness, on the intuition over the matter and the intellect, on the inherent goodness of man, on individualism and self-reliance, on nature as the main proof of God's existence and on the existence of the over-soul.
Transcendentalism was a philosophy of life that influenced and encouraged the Americans, giving them the hope and the strength that they needed to establish a new country with a new perspective, free from its past governor's influence.
