"In all his early life Malthus was brought into close contact with the supporters of radical not to say revolutionary views; and his father was a zealous partisan of the new doctrines... Godwin's Enquirer (1797) was naturally a topic of conversation between father and son; their discussion started a 'general question of the future improvement of society'... and he accordingly wrote and published a book called "An Essay on the Pri ...
