Is "Progress and Poverty" All Fudge? Yes! By Professor Huxley




Publications abstracted:

Thomas H Huxley Nineteenth Century


Controversy, Morality, Government

    Huxley's argument that the 'natural rights theory' of Jean J Rousseau and Henry George is 'merely reasoned savagery' and must be restrained by moral and social law is a 'specimen of lively and sprightly and sledge-hammer polemic'. This 'knock-down method of controversy suggests the thought that [Huxley's] natural vocation was the prize-ring'.
