Excerpt from Principles of Political Economy With Some of Their Applications to Social Philosophy: With Special Introd, by Arthur T. Hadley
How strong and at the same time how subtle was the in ﬂuence of those current conceptions can perhaps best be seen in the works of men who, like Carlyle or Kingsley, at tempted to take a position hostile to Mill. Underlying the thought of these writers, there is the sound and healthful idea that material wealth ought not to be elevated to the position of an independent entity, dissevered from the happiness of those who are to enjoy it. But it would seem that neither of them really formulated this protest in valid shape. Instead of rejecting Mill's conceptions, they inveighed against his conclusions. Like him, they took their subjects ready made; like him they made their own predicates; but, being possessed of less than his power in logic and patience in study, their predicates were less correct than his. And what is seen in Kingsley or Carlyle is seen also in Lassalle and Marx.
