I highly appreciate the historical aspect that explained here. It greatly helped me better understand how transcendentalism works and who made it well known. Maybe for your next post you could compare the similarities and differences between transcendentalism and romanticism.

I agree it was a reaction to the enlightenment and a wave of emphasis on reason within popular culture. This type of reactionism was seen in the hippy movement in the 1960's which repeated some of the themes of romanticism.
