Sinopsis de AN ESSAY ON THE PRINCIPLE OF POPULATION

The book An Essay on the Principle of Population was first published anonymously in 1798 but the author was soon identified as Thomas Robert Malthus The book predicted a grim future as population would increase geometrically doubling every 25 years but food production would only grow arithmetically which would result in famine and starvation unless births were controlledWhile it was not the first book on population it was revised for over 28 years and has been acknowledged as the most influential work of its era Malthus39s book fuelled debate about the size of the population in the Kingdom of Great Britain and contributed to the passing of the Census Act 1800 This Act enabled the holding of a national census in England Wales and Scotland starting in 1801 and continuing every ten years to the present The book39s 6th edition 1826 was independently cited as a key influence by both Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace in developing the theory of natural selectionA key portion of the book was dedicated to what is now known as Malthus39 Iron Law of Population This name itself is retrospective based on the iron law of wages which is the reformulation of Malthus39 position by Ferdinand Lassalle who in turn derived the name from Goethe39s great eternal iron laws in Das Gottliche This theory suggested that growing population rates would contribute to a rising supply of labour that would inevitably lower wages In essence Malthus feared that continued population growth would lend itself to poverty and famineIn 1803 Malthus published under the same title a heavily revised second edition of his work His final version the 6th edition was published in 1826 In 1830 32 years after the first edition Malthus published a condensed version entitled A Summary View on the Principle of Population which included responses to criticisms of the larger work Source Wikipedia
