“The Nonsensical Dialect of Transcendentalism”
Chapter thirty-six is primarily concerned with the rise of Transcendentalism in America and Princeton’s response to this new variation of American Unitarianism. Hodge, along with Albert Dod and James W. Alexander, wrote early, stinging critiques of Transcendentalism for the Repertory. The articles were so well argued that the Unitarian Andrews Norton had them republished in his own battle against the rising influence of Transcendentalism in New England.
