Individualism and Beauty
INDIVIDUALISM: Individualism is one of the fundamental elements of transcendentalism and it means to think for yourself without the rules of society. I feel strongly about this subject because each and every person is unique and has special things about them. Everyone today is so worried about fitting in that they lose some of the characteristics that make them special. I believe the transcendentalist that put strong focus on their writing about individualism were trying to get just this across to their readers and it worked for some. I think with this type of thinking that allows people their genuine selfs, people can be better as an individual which could possibly start other people following this thought.
-BEAUTY: Beauty is another fundamental element of transcendentalism and the writers that put deep thought into their writing about not necessarily just about nature but the beauty in life are just trying to get people to slow down and embrace your surroundings. For most people beauty may a difficult concept to see because they're so caught up in just trying to live that they pass up the little things. I agree with the transcendentalist writings about beauty because people shouldn't go through life without experiencing the beautiful moments.
