El Hombre contra el Estado (Spanish Edition) by Herbert Spencer,Pablo Jiménez Recio,Óliver Serrano Gil,Jorge

By Herbert Spencer,Pablo Jiménez Recio,Óliver Serrano Gil,Jorge Valín,Albert Jay Nock,Tamara Clemente Cano

El Hombre contra el Estado es sin duda l. a. obra más conocida de Herbert Spencer. Esta compilación de cuatro ensayos es una defensa del individualismo contra el mayor de sus agresores, el Estado y los angeles clase política.

Spencer (1820 — 1903) fue un autodidacta que se opuso siempre a los angeles autoridad coercitiva del Estado. Estuvo muy influenciado por su padre —profesor de matemáticas— y su tío Thomas Spencer, pastor metodista que menciona en este libro. Ambos contribuyeron poderosamente a su formación liberal y revolucionaria. Escribió en el periódico radical The Nonconformist y posteriormente, y dejando ya su carrera como ingeniero, en The Economist, en aquel entonces, y no como ahora, una publicación radical que defendía a ultranza las principles del libre mercado y el individualismo.
En el presente libro Spencer nos muestra dos principios ligados, a saber: que las personas han de actuar en su propio interés sin interferencia del Estado, y que los políticos y gestores públicos son capaces de generar más daños a los angeles sociedad que beneficios.
