Transcendentalism: Unorthodox religious movement in nineteenth-century New England influenced by *Romanticism and emphasizing *a priori intuition. Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau, the most famous Transcendentalists, were both avid readers of Samuel Taylor Coleridge but agreed on little between themselves.
