GRIN Verlag, 2007 - 40 páginas
Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Kultur und Landeskunde, Note: 1.3, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, Veranstaltung: Key Concepts in American Culture and History, 12 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Discusses Emerson's early essay "Nature" in light of its connections with the Puritan tradition. The Calvinistic concept of 'Sola Scriptura' is modified by Emerson in that he substitutes the Bible with the Book of Nature. Every human being can find a way to understand God by 'reading' the natural world.
