The English Constitution

By: Walter Bagehot

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: Introduction to the Second Edition. There is a great difficulty in the way of a writer who attempts to sketch a living Constitution, ? a Constitution that is in actual work and power. The difficulty is that the object is in constant change. An historical writer does not feel this difficulty: he deals only with the past; he can say definitely, the Constitution worked in such and such a manner in the year at which he begins, and in a manner in such and such respec...

Lectures on Modern History

By: John Acton

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: Inaugural Lecture on the Study of History. [Delivered at Cambridge, June 1895 ] Fellow students?I look back today to a time before the middle of the century, when I was reading at Edinburgh and fervently wishing to come to this University. At three colleges I applied for admission, and, as things then were, I was refused by all. Here, from the first, I vainly fixed my hopes, and here, in a happier hour, after five-and-forty years, they are at last fulfilled. I d...

The Gilded Age, Illustrated, Volume 6

By: Mark Twain

Excerpt: CHAPTER XLVI. Philip left the capitol and walked up Pennsylvania Avenue in company with Senator Dilworthy. It was a bright spring morning, the air was soft and inspiring; in the deepening wayside green, the pink flush of the blossoming peach trees, the soft suffusion on the heights of Arlington, and the breath of the warm south wind was apparent, the annual miracle of the resurrection of the earth. The Senator took off his hat and seemed to open his soul to the ...

An Introduction to English Economic History and Theory

By: Sir W.J. Ashley

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: 1. Preface: Two causes, above all others, sometimes working separately, sometimes in conjunction, have gradually modified the character of economic science. These two causes are the growing importance of historical studies, and the application to society of the idea of evolution. The first to make itself felt was history: in the hands of Savigny it became the foundation of a new method of jurisprudence, the value of which has been signally illustrated in our own...

The Roman Law of Slavery

By: W.W. Buckland

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: PART I. CONDITION OF THE SLAVE. CHAPTER I. DEFINITION AND GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS. THE Institutes tell us that all men are either slaves or free, and both liberty and slavery are defined by Justinian in terms borrowed from Florentinus. Libertas, he tells us, est naturalis facultas eius quod cuique facere libet nisi si quid vi aut iure prohibetur. No one has defined liberty well: of this definition, which, literally understood, would make everyone free, the only ...

Corporations : A Study of the Origin and Development of Great Business

By: John P. Davis

He had announced for the semester a course of lectures on the political institutions of the Middle Ages; when the end of the semester was reached he had only just finished his introductory remarks. A few years ago I projected a study of the modern ?corporation question,? and intended to clear the ground for the subject by a...

An Answer to the Question : What Is Enlightenment?

By: Immanuel Kant

Konigsberg in Prussia, 30th September, 1784. Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-incurred immaturity. Immaturity is the inability to use one's own understanding without the guidance of another. This immaturity is self-incurred if its cause is not lack of understanding, but lack of resolution and courage to use it without the guidance of another. The motto of enlightenment is therefore: Sapere aude! Have courage to use your own understanding!
