Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Traces the rise of positivism to replace romanticism as the dominant philosophy of the 19th century (at least among English intellectuals). Dale (English, U. of California, Davis) draws mostly on the writing of George Henry Lewes, and explores positivist influence on such writers as George Eliot, Charles Darwin, and Thomas Hardy. Cloth edition (unseen), $42.50.
