Esta semana en clase, estamos leyendo "Excerpt from Walden: “Where I Lived and What I Lived For”" por Henry David Thoreau.

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) was an American author, essayist, poet, abolitionist, and philosopher. He, along with Ralph Waldo Emerson and Margaret Fuller, was one of the major figures of the Transcendentalism movement. The text below is taken from his best known work, Walden, a reflection upon his two years spent living in the wilderness near Walden Pond in Massachusetts.

Conforme leamos, estaremos discutiendo los temas de Loneliness & Isolation, Social Change & Revolution y Technology, Progress & Industry como se relacionan con el texto. Estamos intentando responder estas grandes preguntas :

"What are the costs and benefits of technology?", "Why do people resist change?" y "What does it mean to feel alone?"
