Within the mind of Emerson the East and the West met to produce a new philosophy of life. He was one of the first to explore the wisdom of Asia and to interpret it to the modern world. This book tells of his exploration and then describes something of the mystery he found. In the successive chapters his various borrowings and ideas are related to their Oriental originals. Throughout, the author has treated a vague and imaginative subject as simply and directly as possible, without letting escape the imagination and the mystery.
