    Here in one volume are both the Essays: First Series and Essays: Second Series from one of the most influential philosophers in American history. Although Ralph Waldo Emerson, perhaps America’s most famous philosopher, did not wish to be referred to as a transcendentalist, he is nevertheless considered the founder of this major movement of nineteenth-century American thought. Emerson was influenced by a liberal religious training; theological study; personal contact with the Romanticists Coleridge, Carlyle, and Wordsworth; and a strong indigenous sense of individualism and self-reliance.

    Story

    I am a big fan of Emerson and have been eagerly awaiting versions of his work in audio -- however, I simply CANNOT listen to this narrator - the voice is overly deep and low. It's like listening to music with too much bass. I've tried turning the bass setting to low, treble to high -- but it's still too much. I probably should have immediately requested a refund but I let it go. Because this book is completely unusable/unlistenable for me, I give it the lowest possible overall ranking, despite the 5-star content.
