Publisher's Summary

This version of Nature is an 1843 revision to the popular essay written and published in 1836. In the original essay, Emerson put forth the foundation of transcendentalism and suggested that reality can be understood by studying nature.

Within the essay, Emerson divides nature into four usages: commodity, beauty, language and discipline. These distinctions define how humans use nature for their basic needs, their desire for delight, their communication with one another, and their understanding of the world.

This is NOT Emerson’s famous 1836 Nature book

This is NOT Emerson’s famous 1836 Nature book.

It is Emerson’s 1844 essay of the same title, from his Second Series collection of essays. Shame on audible for not making this clear in their description of this recording.
