Biographie de l'auteur

Henry David Thoreau (born David Henry Thoreau; July 12, 1817 May 6, 1862) was an American author, poet, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, historian, philosopher, and leading transcendentalist. He is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay, Civil Disobedience, an argument for individual resistance to civil government in moral opposition to an unjust state. Thoreau's books, articles, essays, journals, and poetry total over 20 volumes. Among his lasting contributions were his writings on natural history and philosophy, where he anticipated the methods and findings of ecology and environmental history, two sources of modern day environmentalism. His literary style interweaves close natural observation, personal experience, pointed rhetoric, symbolic meanings, and historical lore; while displaying a poetic sensibility, philosophical austerity, and "Yankee" love of practical detail. He was also deeply interested in the idea of survival in the face of hostile elements, historical change, and natural decay; at the same time imploring one to abandon waste and illusion in order to discover life's true essential needs. He was a lifelong abolitionist, delivering lectures that attacked the Fugitive Slave Law while praising the writings of Wendell Phillips and defending abolitionist John Brown. Thoreau's philosophy of civil disobedience influenced the political thoughts and actions of such later figures as Leo Tolstoy, Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Thoreau is sometimes cited as an individualist anarchist. Though Civil Disobedience seems to call for improving rather than abolishing government "I ask for, not at once no government, but at once a better government" the direction of this improvement aims at anarchism: "'That government is best which governs not at all;' and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have." Richard Drinnon partly blames Thoreau for the ambiguity, noting that Thoreau's "sly satire, his liking for wide margins for his writing, and his fondness for paradox provided ammunition for widely divergent interpretations of 'Civil Disobedience.'" He further points out that although Thoreau writes that he only wants "at once" a better government, that does not rule out the possibility that a little later he might favor no government.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Henry you are so radically disobedient 14 novembre 2015
Par Bernie
Format:Format Kindle
I knew that Henry David Thoreau was a tax evader, however I did not realize how radical he was until I read his book on the duty of civil disobedience.

He starts off with "The government is best which governs not at all." This should have tipped me off to what was going to come next.

What would Timothy McVeigh think if he had read this (and he might have):
"Unjust laws exist: shall we be content to obey them, or shall we endeavor to amend them, and obey them until we have succeeded, or shall we transgress them at once?"

Henry David Thoreau's discussion of democracy verging on mob or only majority rule also could have incited certain people. If you put your hand over the title and read the sentences they could've been dropped into "Mein Kamph" and fit very well.

The bottom line in his dissertation is stated:
"There will never be a really free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize that individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly."

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A very good book 2 janvier 2002
Par Jonas Seelig De Bortoli - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This was the first Thoreau's book I read, and it inspired me to read some other of his writings. They are all inspirational, above average, writings. Well, about this book, a strong critic to United States government of his time (why not to extend that to ours, since it seems not much has changed...). He takes a position against slavery, as well as the war with Mexico.
I believe this is one of the most well written works fighting for the liberty of expression and against slavery I ever read.
His ideas about an unexistent State are at least discussible, since it seems very difficult to people live without any organizational structure. But, of course, we SHOULD discuss about State's authority, as well its limits...
Thoreau's own natural life was his inspiration, and (as we can see in his texts) he loved nature, and he spent a lot of time of his life around it. He liked freedom, and in this work he depicts his ideas about freedom, and how it should be applied to him, as well as all mankind.

Civil Disobedience Review

Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau is one of the most important philosophical pieces of work man has ever seen. The main point of this piece of literature is man's right to refuse cooperating with government so as to not become a soldier of injustice for the standing government. "Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison", in this quote Thoreau tells the American people that "We should be men first and subjects later."

Civil Disobedience is a piece of literature that has taught the American people and people around the world that the way to defy the government is to refuse to cooperate with it. Not cooperating with the government is the only way to stop the injustice. Active resistance will not succeed because of the governments' size and strength. The only true form to stop injustice is by not cooperating with it.

Henry David Thoreau's Civil Disobedience has transcended time and space and is as relevant today as when it was written. I recommend this to any reader interested in the right of man to resist and to prove their individuality and strength. This piece of literature proves that man can stop injustice and government and can do what is right.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "Voting for the right is doing nothing for it" 13 mai 2013
Par Hailey McPherson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Though written 150 years ago, this civics lesson is as timely today as it was then. His concerns about slavery and the Mexican-American War aren't all that relevant anymore, but Thoreau says a lot of things that today's Republicans and Democrats argue about all day.

Republicans will agree with how much he hates paying taxes, though few would stick to their guns as much as Thoreau did. "When I meet a government which says to me, 'Your money of your life,' why should I be in haste to give it my money?"

Democrats will agree with how he wants the government to help people even when they talk more than act. "He who gives himself entirely to his fellow men appears to them useless and selfish; but he who gives himself partially to them is pronounced a benefactor and philanthropist."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Just Say No - Civil Disobedience 4 mai 2015
Par Andre Paul - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I read Thoreau's Civil Disobedience decades ago and obtained this so I could have it as a reference. Thoreau is not a revolutionary, he was a man who wanted to peacefully enjoy his own property. Some of the details escape me after so many decades and I will give it a reread, but if you believe that our so called servant government is a pit bull that has escaped the kennel, this is one of the many books that you need to read to sharpen your Liberty paradigm. A must read...
