It was about time to see Kenna’s face again. Kenna is finally releasing his Land 2 Air Chronicles this September with Chad Hugo & RJD2 based on Ralph Waldo Emerson’s “Self-Reliance”.Self-Reliance is an essay written by American Transcendentalist philosopher and essayist, Ralph Waldo Emerson. It contains the most solid statement of one of Emerson’s repeating themes, the need for each individual to avoid conformity and false consistency, and follow his or her own instincts and ideas. Emerson’s ideas are considered a reaction to a commercial identity; he calls for a return to individual identity.
Emerson presupposes that the mind is initially subject to an unhappy nonconformism. However, “Self-Reliance” is not anti-society or anti-community. Instead, Emerson advocates self-reliance as a starting point, not as a goal. From 1836 into 1837, Emerson presented a series of lectures on the philosophy of history at Boston’s Masonic Temple. These lectures were never published separately but many of his thoughts in these lectures were later used in “Self-Reliance” and several other essays.
