Excerpt from Essays in Political Economy

In some of the Essays in this volume, which Provost and Senior Fellows of Trinity College have honoured the author by publishing in the Dublin University Press Series, slight changes of phrase have been made, but for the most part they are reprinted without alteration. Written at different times and on different subjects, they naturally exhibit some diversities of view, and readers who dissent from the author's reasoning on some questions may concur with it in the main on others. Yet threads of connexion will be found in the method of investigation and in some fundamental ideas. The conception, for example, is followed throughout that every branch of the philosophy of society, morals and political economy not excepted, needs investigation and development by historical induction; and that not only the moral and economic condition of society, but its moral and economic theories and ideas, are the results of the course of national history and the state of national culture. Contemporary social phenomena, such as the statistician explores, though indispensable to the researches and verifications of the economist and the moralist, are regarded in these Essays as but the latest links in chains of sequence connecting the past and the future, and us marking steps in a moment in which there is both continuity and change.
