Matagiri and the Emerson Resort & Spa host the 2nd in a series of lectures, this one entitled "Emerson and Thoreau: the Transcendentalists and India," presented by Richard Davis, Professor of Religion and Asian Studies Programs at Bard College. Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau were among the first Americans to read seriously the ancient Indian classics. What impact did their reading of Indian classics have on the development of their distinctly American philosophy of Transcendentalism? This talk will explore some of the early connections between Indian religion and American culture.
