THE THEORY OF DEMOCRATIC PROGRESS

A scholarly, idealistic analysis, in general terms, of the relation between scientific progress and economic organization and the social and economic requirements for democracy. The author considers the conditions necessary for democratic progress in the moral and artistic sense, and he discusses the best economic system to implement the social ideals laid down. Problems examined include the moral dilemma implicit in progress, cultural weaknesses of necessities of political democracy, taxation as a of wealth, the connection between science, capitalism and the material progress of the last 150 years, the meaning and method of democratic development, etc. sound in approach, theoretical in treatment, for college reference shelves in and political science, not for the general trade.
