Example text

For the most part Foxwell was content with rhetorical generalities such as the following: the old political economy was ‘strongly materialistic, sacrificing national welfare to the accumulation of individual wealth’; it was ‘distinctly unmoral . . inasmuch as it claimed that economic action was subject to a mechanical system of law, of a positive character, independent of and superior to any laws of the moral world’ (Foxwell 1887a: 85). This monolithic, diseased and dogmatic dispensation had been forced to give way to one that was more aware of its limitations, more healthily eclectic in its combined use of theory, history, and other forms of inductive evidence.

P. Lock Adam Smith was himself a ‘man of system’. Dugald Stewart testifies to his ‘love of system’, and speculated that he ordered the manuscripts of his unpublished works to be burned because he was unable to ‘bestow on them that systematical arrangement in which he delighted’ (Stewart 1980: 306, 326). Yet for Smith the proper place of ‘system’ was the realm of the aesthetic and the speculative. 17). In the Theory as a whole, Smith aimed at universality, at framing generalizations about human nature and society that readers would find true to their own psychological observations and to human character as represented in literature and history.

19 This was another task he handed over to his friend and pupil, Higgs, who in 1905, 23 years after Jevons’s death, managed to put together a work that is better described by its subtitle than its title: The Principles of Economics; A Fragment of a Treatise on the Industrial Mechanism of Society and Other Papers. Higgs suffered from a milder version of Foxwell’s disease. 20 Bibliophily and procrastination went hand in hand. VI Given the breadth and sophistication of Foxwell’s bibliographic knowledge of economic literature, what he managed to write by way of narrative concerning its historical development is disappointingly limited in scope and heavily programmatic in character.
