The book An Essay on the Principle of Population was first published anonymously in 1798, [1] 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, [2] but food production would only grow arithmetically, which would result in famine and starvation, unless births were controlled. [2]

While 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. Malthus's 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 book's 6th edition (1826) was independently cited as a key influence by both Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace in developing the theory of natural selection.

    Robert Owen: Owen had made New Lanark a changed community; within five years it was unrecognizable; in ten years more it was world famous. It would have been accomplishment enough for most men, for in addition to winning a European reputation for farsightedness and benevolence, Robert Owen made a fortune of at least sixty thousand pounds for himself.. he advocated the formation of the Villages of Cooperation in which eight hundred to twelve hundred souls would work together in farm and factory to form a self-sustaining unit. The families were to live in houses grouped in parallelograms - the word immediately caught the public eye - with each family in a private apartment but sharing common sitting rooms and reading rooms and kitchens. Thomas MAlthus: economist he published the first edition of his great work, An Essay on the Principle of Population as it affects the Future Improvement of Society, with Remarks on the Speculations of Mr. Godwin, M. Condorcet, and other Writers. The work excited a good deal of surprise as well as attention; Hope this helped!

    A key portion of the book was dedicated to what is now known as Malthus'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' Iron Law of Population. This name itself is retrospective, based on the iron law of wages , which is the reformulation of Malthus'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' position by Ferdinand Lassalle , who in turn derived the name from Goethe ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s "great, eternal iron laws" in Das Göttliche. [3] 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 famine.

    Thomas Robert Malthus FRS ( / ˈ m æ l θ ə s / ; 13 February 1766 – 29 December 1834) [1] was an English cleric and scholar, influential in the fields of political economy and demography. [2] Malthus himself used only his middle name, Robert. [3]

    That the increase of population is necessarily limited by the means of subsistence,
    That population does invariably increase when the means of subsistence increase, and,
    That the superior power of population is repressed by moral restraint, vice and misery. [7]

    Thomas Robert Malthus was the first economist to propose a systematic theory of population. He articulated his views regarding population in his famous book, Essay on the Principle of Population (1798), for which he collected empirical data to support his thesis. Malthus had the second edition of his book published in 1803, in which he modified some of his views from the first edition, but essentially his original thesis did not change.

    JAMES HUTTON".if an organised body is not in the situation and circumstances best adapted to its sustenance and propagation, then, in conceiving an indefinite variety among the individuals of that species, we must be assured, that, on the one hand, those which depart most from the best adapted constitution, will be the most liable to perish, while, on the other hand, those organised bodies, which most approach to the best constitution for the present circumstances, will be best adapted to continue, in preserving themselves and multiplying the individuals of their race." (Effectively = "Survival of the Fittest"). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Hutton LAMARCK is usually remembered for his belief in the inheritance of acquired characteristics, and the "use and disuse" model by which organisms developed their characteristics. Lamarck incorporated this belief into his theory of evolution, along with other more common beliefs of the time, such as spontaneous generation. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamarck GEORGE LYELL Charles Darwin was a close personal friend, and Lyell was one of the first prominent scientists to support On the Origin of Species; he also fully accepted natural selection as the driving engine behind evolution in his tenth edition of Principles. In fact, Lyell was instrumental in arranging the peaceful co-publication of the theory of natural selection by Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace in 1858, reflecting the fact that each had arrived at the theory independently (Darwin long before Wallace, however). Lyell s own The Geological Evidence of the Antiquity of Man followed a few years later in 1863. Lyell s data was important because Darwin thought that populations of an organism changed very slowly, requiring what is now known as "geologic time". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Lyell THOMAS MALTHUS Malthus s idea of man s "struggle for existence" had an influence on Charles Darwin and the theory of evolution. Other scientists related this idea to plants and animals, which helped to define a piece of the evolutionary puzzle. This struggle for existence of all creatures provides the catalyst by which natural selection produces the "survival of the fittest", a phrase coined by Herbert Spencer. Darwin, in his book The Origin of Species, called his theory an application of the doctrines of Malthus in an area without the complicating factor of human intelligence. Darwin, a life-long admirer of Malthus, referred to Malthus as "that great philosopher" and wrote in his notebook that "Malthus on Man should be studied". Wallace called Malthus s essay ".the most important book I read." and considered it "the most interesting coincidence" that reading Malthus led both himself and Darwin, independently, towards the idea of evolution. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Malthus
