In this second instalment of ‘Two Generations of American Philosophy’ I speak about the Ralph Waldo Emerson and William James as teachers and then give some background history of the early 19th century when New England Transcendentalism emerged. Included in the history is a discussion about the election of Andrew Jackson to the United States presidency and the Second Great Awakening.
Jeff Carreira is a mystical philosopher and spiritual guide. He is the author of eleven books on meditation and philosophy. He teaches online programs and leads retreats throughout the world that teach people how to let go of their current perceptual habits so they are free to participate in the creation of a new paradigm. To put it simply, he supports people to live a spiritually inspired life, free from the constraints of fear, worry and self-doubt, and aligned with their own deepest sense of meaning and purpose.
