SUMMARY

Emerson has been sold to our generation as a narrow and irrelevant idealist. This selection of essays presents his case for a responsible realism. To be human is to take one side to every issue, precisely why Emerson struggles for balance. But if he struggles for a central position, no doubt extremists presume that any movement away from their own position must "therefore" be toward their antithesis. He cannot take a central position without appearing to oppose each of the two extremists from each of their respective points of view. "I know that human strength is not in extremes, but in avoiding extremes" (Montaigne; or, The Skeptic).Emerson, Ralph Waldo is the author of 'Ralph Waldo Emerson, Realist Essays of Resignation and Renewal' with ISBN 9780971930100 and ISBN 0971930104.
