Read full description of the books:

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862). Ensayista, topógrafo, disidente nato y maestro de la prosa, su auténtico empleo fue, según él se ocupó de recordar, «inspector de ventiscas y diluvios». Su nombre ha llegado a nuestros días ligado a dos libros capitales para el pensamiento individualista y antiautoritario: Ensayo sobre la Desobediencia Civil (1849) y Walden (1854). Caminar (Walking) fue, sin embargo, en vida de Thoreau, su obra más popular. Concebida como conferencia y leída en numerosas ocasiones, sólo se llegó a publicar póstumamente. Es, sobre todo, una exposición de la filosofía del deambular, pero también la defensa de un «pensamiento salvaje» que arroje sobre nuestra conciencia una luz más parecida a la de un relámpago que a la de una vela. Su ironía y el rumbo vagabundo que por momentos toman sus reflexiones, hacen de la lectura de este libro algo tan tonificante como un paseo de buena mañana. Y no hace falta que Thoreau nos recuerde que «el aburrimiento no es sino otro nombre de la domesticación».

Read information about the author

Ebook Caminar read Online! Henry David Thoreau (born David Henry Thoreau) was an American author, naturalist, transcendentalist, tax resister, development critic, philosopher, and abolitionist who is best known for Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay, Civil Disobedience, an argument for individual resistance to civil government in moral opposition to an unjust state.

Thoreau's books, articles, essays, journals, and poetry total over 20 volumes. Among his lasting contributions were his writings on natural history and philosophy, where he anticipated the methods and findings of ecology and environmental history, two sources of modern day environmentalism.

In 1817, Henry David Thoreau was born in Massachusetts. He graduated from Harvard University in 1837, taught briefly, then turned to writing and lecturing. Becoming a Transcendentalist and good friend of Emerson, Thoreau lived the life of simplicity he advocated in his writings. His two-year experience in a hut in Walden, on land owned by Emerson, resulted in the classic, Walden: Life in the Woods (1854). During his sojourn there, Thoreau refused to pay a poll tax in protest of slavery and the Mexican war, for which he was jailed overnight. His activist convictions were expressed in the groundbreaking On the Duty of Civil Disobedience (1849). In a diary he noted his disapproval of attempts to convert the Algonquins "from their own superstitions to new ones." In a journal he noted dryly that it is appropriate for a church to be the ugliest building in a village, "because it is the one in which human nature stoops to the lowest and is the most disgraced." (Cited by James A. Haught in 2000 Years of Disbelief.) When Parker Pillsbury sought to talk about religion with Thoreau as he was dying from tuberculosis, Thoreau replied: "One world at a time."

Thoreau's philosophy of nonviolent resistance influenced the political thoughts and actions of such later figures as Leo Tolstoy, Mohandas K. Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr. D. 1862.
