dc.description.abstractThe following paper is interested in the predisposition to profound boredom and its potential to arouse despair. In light of such, it explores three modes of being – perceiving, walking, and writing – to illustrate a potential for living in a way that recovers vitality from the two. It pursues these matters through the life and literature of Henry David Thoreau, nineteenth-century author and philosopher who spent two years of his life at Walden Pond. The paper analyzes a broad scope of Thoreauvian literature to clarify just how certain modes of being, at their best, are vital. It ultimately situates readers in a place to consider their response to living in the world and the possibility that religious life might include a function similar to Thoreau’s three vital modes of being.en_US
