Enquiry Concerning Political Justice, And Its Influence On Morals And Happiness
First American Edition. Volume One of Two Only. Small octavo, contemporary full leather, gilt spine label. Scarce 18th Century American printing of this influential work establishing Godwin as a major philosophical leader of English radicalism. Proposing the abolition of organized religion politics, and society. "It was one of the earliest, the clearest, and most absolute theoretical expositions of socialist and anarchist doctrine. Godwin believed that the motives of all human action were subject to reason, and that reason taught benevolence, and that therefore all rational creatures could live in harmony without laws and institutions, marriage and parental duty were alike irrational, and property the worst form of tyranny. Godwin's passionate advocacy of individualism, his trust in the fundamental goodness of man, and his opposition to all restrictions of liberty, have endured.". (Printing and the Mind of Man). Generally Very Good, front hinge broken, few small holes at top spine area. N° de ref. de la librería 25516
