Summary In his graceful philosophical account, Alfred I. Tauber shows why Thoreau still seems relevant today--more so in many respects than he seemed to his contemporaries. Although Thoreau has been skillfully and thoroughly examined as a writer, naturalist, mystic, historian, social thinker, Transcendentalist, and lifelong student, we find in Tauber's portrait of Thoreau the moralist a characterization that binds all these aspects together.
