Heading: On Oikology
Category: Political Economy   Science   Philosophy Of Science   History Of Science   Agriculture   Enclosure   
Topic: [Response to an article outwith the Athenaeum. This is "the last number" of the "Quarterly Review". The relevant piece is entitled "Condition of the Lower Orders". The Athenaeum essay is a discussion of the emergent discipline of political economy and the debate as to its "nature", with reference to the issue of "consolidating small farms". Is "political economy" a pure science or a set of rules for conduct based on practical experience? Might its development resemble the development of other disciplines, as, for example the emergence of astronomy from astrology, from an omnipotent to a marginal status in the affairs of mankind, finally to attain the status of a pure science? The writer eventually seems to suggest that the "management of the state" is best served by a combination of practical sense and philosophy]

Heading: Quip Modest on a Late Retort Courteous. Being the Substance of a Dialogue Supplementary to Mrs. Marcet`s "Conversations on Political Economy"
Category: Political Economy   Science   Philosophy Of Science   History Of Science   
Topic: ["Platonic" dialogue involving participants: the fictitious "Mrs. B." of Mrs. Marcet`s book to popularize the subject of political economy; Miss Caroline the adopted "niece" of Jonathan Johnson; Jonathan Johnson and Ephraim Mullens, the main adversaries in the controversy over Mullens` Athenaeum article "On Oikology". It starts with a scarcely veiled, vitriolic attack upon Mullens, (Johnson has trodden, in the scenario, "upon a fat aristocratic spaniel, who is made to feel the horrors of all sudden revolutionary transitional social movements".) It ends with a fiercely eloquent defence of the science of political economy.]
