Chapter 8, reveals that, in addition to Coleridge's enormous impact on Emerson and Boston Transcendentalism, his influence extended even further into the nineteenth and early twentieth century via a second strand of Transatlantic Transcendentalism: “Vermont Transcendentalism.” James Marsh's restructuring of the University of Vermont curriculum according to Coleridgean principles revolutionized higher education, and many of Marsh's students became important public intellectuals, including H. J. Raymond, founder of The New York Times, and John Dewey, a founding figure in the philosophical movement of Pragmatism. Coleridge's influence on Vermont Transcendentalism transformed American nineteenth- and early twentieth-century letters, constituting a multi-generational link in Transatlantic Transcendentalism and ensuring his relevance for over a hundred years after the first editions of Coleridge arrived on American shores.
