Idealism is one of my favorite beliefs by the Transcendentalist. Idealism is the idea that one pursues unrealistic ideas. I believe in this idea because this helps someone chase their dreams and make them come true. It makes someone a better individual because it lets them use their sense of imagination. Without having this sense of imagination, the world would be a dull and boring place.
Individualism is my other favorite idea created by the Transcendentalist. Individualism is the idea that the individual is corrupted by society and social institutions. I believe in this idea because today, if you look at society, most people stay in the norm. Even if the "norm" isn't the right thing to do. It's good to go outside of the box sometimes. This idea makes you a better individual because it makes you aware that society does not always know best.
