Ralph Waldo Emerson's: The American Scholar In 1837, Ralph Waldo Emerson gave a famous lecture entitled "The American Scholar". In the essay, Emerson notes (among many other things) that there is "creative reading" as well as "creative reading". To that end, the members of Ethics Talk decided to all read "The American Scholar" - an essay which no one of us has yet read. Nor are any of us "experts" on Emerson. We think, though, that Emerson may approve of our effort to come together and discuss the ideas within the essay. So, in this show, we discuss what lessons we learned from "The American Scholar" not just for "Americans" but for all human beings yearning for the True, the Good and The Beautiful.
