Our Class Definition of Transcendentalism
An early 19th century philosophical movement that spearheaded by Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson that stipulates individuals have the ability to think beyond their body, and prioritizes self-reliance, nonconformity, spiritual connection through nature, and not believing in God as the traditional religious figure, but finds a God in nature, and believing that everything is connected (we are all a part of a universal soul).
