Here is the essential collection of Emerson's spiritual thought for those readers who understand the transformative quality of ideas. It is concise and suited to years of rereading and contemplation, offering the essays that trace the arc of the inner message brought by America's "Yankee Mystic." THE SPIRITUAL EMERSON features many of Emerson's landmark works. Yet, also, included are overlooked classics, such as the essays "Fate" and "Success," which served as major sources of inspiration to some of the leading metaphysical thinkers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The introduction by religious scholar and philosopher Jacob Needleman frames - historically and philosophically - the development of Emerson's thought and explores why it has such a powerful hold on us today. This is another classic title in the 'Tarcher Cornerstone Edition' series, in which the great works of philosophy, spirituality and mind , body & spirit are presented for today's readers.
