Transcendentalism was a belief and a philosophy that all things are connected and that the divine was to be found pervading all of nature, including mankind. This is highly reflected in Thoreau's life on Walden Pond as each journal entry underscores some lesson he's learned from nature, or some new facet of the human existence that he's learned by being away from the city and immersed in nature.
