    Kant saw the development of reason as a collective possession of the human species, a product of nature working through human history. He is strangely unresponsive to the goings-on of the village, but the individuals he meets are all affected and softened by their encounters with him. These figures almost certainly substantially understate the numbers of those influenced by Methodism by attending meetings, worship and preaching but not formally becoming members. In all these ways, Malthus exhibited an ambivalent attitude to the emotions of the poor, both insensitive to and preoccupied with their affective lives. No other book now available accomplishes what Cotlar achieves through his careful, deeply insightful attention to the content of opposition papers and how it changed over time.

This pamphlet was dedicated to men of feeling, and one of his motivations for writing it was to critique the way in which, under the repressive, alarmist government of William Pitt, the predominant passion in society had become fear—an emotion inimical to enterprise and excellence. The result was a lengthy but disorganized manuscript that was first published in under the title Opus Postumum. David Fernbach Harmondsworth: Penguin, p.
