Emerson and New Thought: How Emerson’s Essays Influenced the Science of Mind Philosophy



EMERSON’S ESSAYS have become the signature writings of the famous American transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson. Not only did these essays turn heads and open eyes in the mid nineteenth century, but they are still doing the same today. His spiritual insights can be seen most profoundly in New Thought and the work of Ernest Holmes and the Science of Mind philosophy. So much so, that specific essays are required reading in New Thought introductory classes. One teacher who has earned the esteem of spiritual leaders throughout New Thought, Dr. Carol Carnes has now provided readers with the specific essays that influenced Ernest Holmes the most: SELF-RELIANCE, THE OVER-SOUL, SPIRITUAL LAWS, COMPENSATION, and CIRCLES. Each chapter includes an essay and Carol’s commentary along with her insightful questions for the reader. The entire book has been edited to allow each reader to easily understand and grasp these concepts on a personal level in the world of today.
