New York: McClure Phillips & Co.. Very Good. 1902. First American Edition. Hardcover. (no dust jacket) [front endpaper removed with consequent weakening of front hinge, otherwise a good sound copy with light bumping to the extremities and mild soiling to top edge of the text block, a handful of tiny white flecks on spine, a few faint water-spots on rear cover]. Important work by this Russian philosopher and anarcho-communist, presenting a counter-argument to the Darwinian concept of evolution. It was Kropotkin's contention that cooperation between individuals, rather than Darwin's survival-of-the-fittest competition, was at the core of human evolution. In his view, groups and societies driven by cooperative rather than competitive philosophies would tend to be "the most prosperous, and the most open to further progress." . (Inventory #: 22256)
