Ralph Waldo Emerson

By J-Allen Bentz

What did he do to help transcendentalism??

He gave continuous speeches and lectures about abolition(Anti-slavery) and transcendentalism, this helped the movement of the two reformations. Before Emerson people did not believe in transcendentalism, but as Emerson kept lecturing and lecturing people about this faith… More people began to believe in it. Emerson helped motivate the transformation of transcendentalism.
