Dead poet’s society was filmed through the eyes of transcendentalism using Emerson’s philosophy, as seen in walden. The film deals with a group of young men who attend a very strict boarding school and the english teacher who gives them a new perspective on everything, the damaging effects of conformity, beautiful sense of nature, and emphasis of simplicity and individuality are shown in many elements throughout Dead Poet’s Society and are ultimately highlighted by emerson and thoreau’s philosophies, making the overall concept of transcendentalism understood. It shows this philosophy very well through the death of Neil Perry, opening of students, and Mr. Keating as the voice of transcendentalism. Main character of the film Neil Perry, an overachieving, good natured young man who is unwillingly committed to become a doctor due to his very strict father.
In the world, society has set standards most people follow. They must dress, act, and look a certain way for them to be accepted by others. Several do not understand that they are being conformed to be someone who they are not. Some movies challenge others to look beyond the standards of society. For example, in movie “Dead Poets Society”, Mr. Keating 's teaches his students to form their own ideas and opinions.
In the Dead Poets Society, the idea of conformity is the tradition for students in Welton Academy. For instance, in school, students we forced to dresses the same school blazers and follow the same "four pillars" (tradition, honor, discipline, excellence). That shows the repetition in school spirits even though it can't work for everyone. Similarly, in Neil's family, his father seems to care a lot about his son's success by layouts his own path to become a doctor. This illustrates through the discipline and conformity which leads to achieve 'success' but in a narrow, material sense of getting good grades, going to a good school to get a good job.

To prove this he will use his status and credibility, his information and statistics, and emotions to get us, the readers, to side with him. In his argument Springer uses ethos, logos and pathos to get you to lean towards his side.

The movie Dead Poets Society is based on the philosophies of transcendentalism.
