The American Transcendentalists (who deeply inspired Neitzsche) give us a new insight into the divinity of nature itself. The themes they develop play out equally in the Romantic wanderings of the nineteenth century and the nature trekking of the twentieth. Picking apart these works and their call to the sublime emotions we see how a new solitary self emerges waiting to stride towards to the caustic hyperindividualism of the late twentieth century.
Each session will be from 10.30am to 12.30pm with a short 10 minute water/stretch break at intermission.
