'Richard Geldard has written a magnificent book through which Emerson's teaching becomes again an instigator. Is Geldard the last of Emerson's great disciples - or the first of a new generation? This book deserves to be widely read; it contains our own best thoughts.' -- Roger Lipsey, editor and biographer of Ananda K. Coomaraswamy, author of An Art of Our Own: The Spiritual in Twentieth-Century Art 'Through Geldard's book, Emerson shows a new generation of Americans that it is possible and necessary to bring to the spiritual search an open heart joined to a critical mind.' -- Jacob Needleman, author of The Heart of Philosophy
