Discipline...

| No Comments

When I first started reading this chapter, I thought of discipline as rules to follow, not the category of learning. This made it difficult to understand till I saw itdifferently. Emerson ties this chapter, Discipline, into, first, all the other chapters in this reading, as well as religion, faith, and God.

 

"Nature is a discipline of the understanding in intellectual truths."

 

Emerson explains to us that everything in existence is tied together....Reason, Matter, Mind, Understanding....all things linked together and held in place within Discipline. Every aspect may have a different use, but they congeal together.
