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.]
