About the author:
William Godwin is considered the father of modern philosophical anarchism. Although the Enquiry is his most important political work, Godwin was also the author of Things as They Are, or the Adventures of Caleb Williams, which is considered the first modern mystery novel. Works such as these would inspire William Hazlitt to write that Godwin "blazed as a sun in the firmament of reputation; no one was more talked of, more looked up to, more sought after, and wherever liberty, truth, justice was the theme, his name was not far off."

Essay on Property

Authored by William Godwin

A reissuing of H.S. Salt's 1890 edition of William Godwin's anarchist treatise arguing for the abolition of private property. The Essay on Property is the last and most important part of Godwin's Enquiry Concerning Political Justice and offers the most accessible introduction to Godwin's political philosophy.

Essay on Property is the first volume in SophiaOmni's Wisdom Classics Editions. The aim of these editions is to reintroduce to the American reading public works by iconoclastic visionaries from the past who have something significant to say about issues of justice and the common good.
