More > Transcendentalism suggests that divinity suffuses all nature, and speaks to the notion that we can only understand reality through studying nature. Henry David Thoreau had read "Nature" as a senior at Harvard College and took it to heart. It eventually became an essential influence for Thoreau's later writings, including his seminal Walden.
