The Beliefs Of Emerson And Kant

723 words - 3 pages

The Beliefs of Emerson and Kant Everybody has a certain drum beat to which their life goes by, and it is up to that person to find that drum beat whether someone is guiding you or not. Emerson and Kant both believe that there are people guiding you and it is possible to break away from these people controlling you. And they both mention the fact that if you break away from being controlled by these people then you have accomplished something that a lot of people haven't done yet. They both have the same opinion but they express it a little differently. Like, Emerson likes to get right to the point. Emerson says, " They do not seem to me to be such; but if I am the Devil's child, I will live then from the Devil." Which is basically saying that even if he doesn't like the Devil's decision, he will still follow them. ...view middle of the document...

So both Emerson and Kant believe that some people have control over other humans. It could be a bad type of control too the point were they can't live on their own or it cold be a good thing to be guided so they can live on their own. And if you are connected to these people then there has got to be a way that you can break away from these people. Emerson and Kant both believe that some people have the ability to break away from the controlling people. Kant writes, " It is especially to be noted that the public which was earlier brought under the yoke by these men afterward forces these very guardians to remain in submission, if it is so incited by some of it's guardians who are themselves incapable of any enlightenment." This is basically saying that the people that have broke away from the controlling people, the yoke, are capable of enlightenment. Emerson also agrees that people can break away from saying, " Speak what you think now in hard words and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said today." This quote is from after you have already broke away. So since it is after you have already broke away then obviously Emerson believes that you can get away from these people, by saying what you want to say whenever you want to say it. Even if it doesn't make any sense and nobody can understand you, you still can continue to say these hard words if you wan to. These means that you are one-step closer to reaching that drum beat that you want to discover. So to find that drum beat that your life is suppose to go by is totally up to you. Either you have to break away from the people that are guiding you to find that drum beat or you can be one of the followers of the guardians to help you guide your way to that drum beat. So be yourself and make your own decisions. If you need some help, help will always be there to guide you and if you don't like that help then you don't have to follow it.
