When Emerson states, “It by no means follows that we are not fit for society, because soirees are tedious,” in Society and Solitude, how does he support his statement?
Emerson describes what society is like when viewed up-close rather than what we perceive by looking outside. When he says that the best bred law-school student is talking together, he saw himself as a boor, but when he found them apart, they were the boor, he is referring to society. When society is together, you can miss on most things and think everyone is perfect, but you will find flaws in each individual's personality when you found the individual. He concludes that when we recall the irregular hours we found the best person, he refers to each individual should think of themselves as special just like everyone and despite what we think our problems are some people have more issues than we do.
