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]
