On the Duty of Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau

Penned by American philosopher and transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau, On the Duty of Civil Disobedience examines the role of the individual's conscience in governmental rule. Thoreau argues that individual citizens must not simply be subject to the decisions of government, but should question every political act to ensure that the system remains a tool for justice and morality—a message that continues to resonate powerfully in modern times.

On the Duty of Civil Disobedience, or simply Civil Disobedience, was an important reflection of transcendentalist philosophy which has since come to shape American theories on the role of citizens. Thoreau was a staunch abolitionist, and his writing was informed by the injustices he observed in the American political and social systems of mid-nineteenth century.
