I just discovered and starting reading this collection of essays by William Godwin. It is a wonderful view of early nineteenth century thought after the Enlightenment and Age of Reason. It's refreshing to read the thoughts and reflections from 200 years ago.
This first sentence immediately grabbed my attention: "The true object of education, like that of every other moral process, is the generation of happiness."
I came here by way of wanting to learn more about the father of Mary Shelley, and husband to Mary Wollstonecraft.
