Spencer had caught a vision of what might be in store for mankind if its potential were free to realize itself.


— Edmund A. Opitz, The Freeman


This volume contains the four essays that Spencer published as The Man Versus the State in 1884 as well as five essays added by later publishers. In addition, it provides "The Proper Sphere of Government," an important early essay by Spencer.

Eric Mack is Professor of Philosophy at Newcomb College of Tulane University
