Synopsis

This book attempts to reveal the previously underemphasized Eastern roots of the transcendentalist thought of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. This work should appeal to scholars interested in inter-religious dialogue and Transcendentalist thought. Not only modern England, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain, but also ancient Egypt, Persia, India, and China were favorite hunting grounds of knowledge for Emerson. Thoreau recommended the Bhagavad Gita enthusiastically, asserting that the book deserves to be read with reverence even by Yankees - there was probably no one in the West who so ardently loved and recommended Hindu literature as Thoreau. Be this as it may, the Eastern side of both of these men's thought is widely neglected in studies. This work seeks to correct this blind-spot in the scholarly approaches to Emerson and Thoreau.
