  1. Natural Supernaturalism

    Natural Supernaturalism is the name of a chapter in Thomas Carlyle's novel Sartor Resartus, which, says Dr. Stirling, "contains the very first word of a higher philosophy as yet spoken in Great Britain, the very first English word towards the restoration and rehabilitation of the dethroned Upper Powers." The Nuttall Encyclopaedia states that Natural Supernaturalism refers to the supernatural found latent in the natural, and manifesting itself in it, or of the miraculous in the common and everyday course of things. Carlyle's theory of Natural Supernaturalism influenced Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau, two admirers of Carlyle. It therefore contributed greatly to American Transcendentalism. This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domain: Wood, James, ed.. "". The Nuttall Encyclopædia. London and New York: Frederick Warne.
