The first video biography of "America's Founding Thinker," Ralph Waldo Emerson. Emerson's belief in "the infinitude of the private man" still resonates with spiritual seekers today. Most people know Emerson's essay, "Self-Reliance," but there is much more to the fascinating life of the man and his circle, which included Henry David Thoreau, Walt Whitman, and Margaret Fuller. You will never look at Emerson--or yourself--quite the same way again.

Includes interviews with Robert D. Richardson Jr., author of "Emerson: The Mind on Fire;" Richard G. Geldard, author of "God in Concord;" Barbara Solowey, teacher and lecturer; Richard Grossman, author and psychotherapist; and Sarah Ann Wider, Professor of English, Colgate University.
