Summary
"The miscellaneous writings of Herbert Spencer, originally published in various English periodicals, were collected by the Author and reissued in London in two volumes, under the title of "Essays Scientific, Political, and Speculative," first and second series--the former appearing in 1857, and the latter in 1863. Neither of these volumes has been printed in this country, though a small edition of the second series was imported in sheets, bound and sold in a few weeks. The increasing demand for these works on this side of the Atlantic, and the impracticability of obtaining them from England, owing to the high rate of exchange, made it desirable to republish them here. This collection embraced the more strictly scientific articles, and those which bore most directly upon the general doctrine of progress or evolution. The present volume puts the American public in possession of Mr. Spencer's remaining essays. Although some of the following essays may seem to be confined to the consideration of English policy, yet this limitation is only apparent. English facts and experiences are taken as examples and illustrations, but the discussions strike through to principles of universal moment and applicability" (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)
