BAGEHOT, Walter [1826-1877].
Physics And Politics; Or, Thoughts On The Application Of The Principles Of "Natural Inheritance" And "Inheritance" To Political Society. (The International Scientific Series).
New York: D.Appleton And Company, 1873..
12mo. pp. 2 p.l., 224, [12]ads. original black & gilt-stamped cloth (spine ends chipped). First American Edition. Bagehot was a prominent British journalist, businessman and writer on politics and economics who co-founded the National Review in 1855 and became the editor-in-chief of The Economist in 1861. "This volume, first published in 1872, contains Bagehot's discussion of the scientific principles of progress in a society. Incorporating aspects of other social disciplines, including anthropology and Darwinian evolutionary theory, Bagehot traces the development of political society from an assumed 'pre-political' age to the development of nation-states, and examines the developments necessary for evolution into a liberal, trade-oriented society. Bagehot's appreciation of both conservative and liberal values is evident in this volume, which provides a valuable example of the influence of Darwinian thought in the late nineteenth century."
