Summary expansion
Worley (English, Arkansas Tech U.) draws on the work of several contemporary thinkers, including Michael Walzer, Alisdair MacIntyre, Charles Taylor, and Stanley Cavell, to argue that the mature thought of Emerson and Thoreau is deeply imbedded in community, and that their best social criticism is immanent rather than transcendent in character. He explores their political writings and their encounter with abolitionism, showing their perspectives on self and community to be too sophisticated to be labeled clearly liberal or conservative.
