Description

Examines Emerson's aesthetic as a metaphysical poem about two things: the human act of creation, and the divine. In the transcendental frame of reference, an aesthetic becomes basically a religion and not a philosophy. Constructing a deductive framework from Emerson's writings, the author examines in particular the influence of Coleridge, and also looks at earlier influences such as Kant, Plato and Fichte, Plotinus etc.
