Abstract:

"This book highlights the ideas of the English philosopher Herbert Spencer, which he offered in an interview that appeared in several newspapers in 1882, and at a farewell banquet in his honor that same year. As a life-long student of social progress, Spencer argued that American society had not reached the final stage of that progress. He thought the great ideal of American life--action, enterprise, work--neither a permanent nor the highest ideal of human society. The law of evolution, which has brought us up to this from a much lower condition, must carry us on still further"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved).
