     “Emerson: The Ideal In America” is the first video biography of the most quoted author in the United States today, Ralph Waldo Emerson.
     Emerson awakened America to its true spiritual and intellectual heritage. Drawing on the wisdom of Plato and the Eastern spiritual traditions, he spoke of “one spirit which animates all things” and “one mind being common to all.” Igniting a search for truth, freedom and self-knowledge through his writing and his life. Emerson still inspires readers today to embrace these truths for themselves.
