Transcendentalism:
Transcendentalism was a movement that began in the 1830's as a protest against the general cultural state. Transcendentalists believed that the institutionalism of society corrupted an individuals purity caused by organization among religion and political parties. This era was convinced that humans were at their best in an individual state of mind, being reliant upon only themselves. This is notably one of the first intellectual movements in the history of America.
