Notes

CHAPTER 1

1. Gougeon, Virtue's Hero: Emerson, Antislavery, and Reform (Athens: University of Georgia Press, 1990), 4. Some of the details in the following paragraph I have gathered from Gougeon's book and I will have more to say about its importance in chapter 2.

2. The Complete Works of Ralph Waldo Emerson, centenary edition, vol. 2, ed. E. W. Emerson (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1903–4), 9–10. Hereafter cited as CW with volume and page number.

3. John Dewey, The Middle Works, 1899–1924, ed. Jo Ann Boydston, 15 vols. (Carbondale: Southern Illinois University Press, 1984), 11:43. Hereafter cited as MW with volume and page number.

4. The Journals and Miscellaneous Notebooks of Ralph Waldo Emerson, ed. William H. Gilman and others, 16 vols. (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, Belknap Press, 1960–82), 11:351. Hereafter cited as JMN with volume and page number.

5. Emerson's proposed remedy for the Church was, interestingly, the same as his remedy for the government: “the church should always be new and extemporized” (CW 11:478).

6. In form, this strategy recalls the one that Kenneth Burke makes note of in Hitler's Mein Kampf: Of “Hitlerism,” Burke notes, “irrational it is, but it is carried on under the slogan of 'Reason' the rationalized family tree for this hate situates it in 'Aryan love.'” See Kenneth Burke, The Philosophy of Literary Form: Studies in Symbolic Action (Berkeley: University of California Press, 1973), 199.
