    William Godwin
    First published Sun Jan 16, 2000; substantive revision Wed Apr 8, 2009 An Enquiry Concerning Political Justice (1793) he argued that government is a corrupting force in society, perpetuating dependence and ignorance, but that it will be rendered increasingly unnecessary and powerless by the gradual spread of knowledge. Politics will be displaced by an enlarged personal morality as truth conquers error and mind subordinates matter. In this development the rigorous exercise of private judgment, and its candid expression in public discussion, plays a central role, motivating his rejection of a wide range of co-operative and rule-governed practices which he regards as tending to mental enslavement, such as law, private property, marriage and concerts. Epitomising the optimism of events in France at the time he began writing, Godwin looked forward to a period in which the dominance of mind over matter would be so complete that mental perfectibility would take a physical form, allowing us to control illness and ageing and become immortal. and the chambermaid turns out to be my mother. Godwin's conclusion that we must save the former relies on consequentialist grounds. However, since his account of the content of utility is inseparable from the development of truth and wisdom, and since we can best promote this through the full and free exercise of private judgment and public discussion, the resulting position looks more like a form of perfectionism than utilitarianism.

    UK Occupation Journalist Political philosopher novelist William Godwin (3 March 1756 – 7 April 1836) was a British journalist, political philosopher and novelist . He is considered one of the first exponents of utilitarianism , and the first modern proponent of anarchism Godwin is most famous for two books that he published within the space of a year: An Enquiry Concerning Political Justice , an attack on political institutions , and Things as They Are or The Adventures of Caleb Williams , which attacks aristocratic privilege, but also is virtually the first mystery novel . Based on the success of both, Godwin featured prominently in the radical circles of London in the 1790s. In the ensuing conservative reaction to British radicalism , Godwin was attacked, in part because of his marriage to the pioneering feminist writer Mary Wollstonecraft in 1797 and his candid biography of her after her death; their child, Mary Godwin (later Mary Shelley) would go on to author Frankenstein and marry the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley . Godwin wrote prolifically in the genres of novels

Ambos padres (John y Anne) eran considerados calvinistas estrictos. Su padre, un sacerdote separatista, murió joven y nunca inspiró mucho cariño o pena en su hijo; pero, a pesar de sus diferencias de opinión, las relaciones de afecto entre William y su madre siempre existieron hasta su muerte a una edad muy avanzada.

    William Godwin was born at Wisbech in 1756. After three years at day school and three years with a private tutor in Norwich , Godwin entered Hoxton Presbyterian College. Godwin left college as a Tory but after five years as a minister he had developed radical political views. While he was a minister in Beaconsfield William Godwin became friendly with the Rational Dissenters, Richard Price and Joseph Priestley
    In 1787 Godwin left the ministry and became a full-time writer. Inspired by the writings of Tom Paine , Godwin published Enquiry into Political Justice in 1793. In the book Godwin argued that as long as people acted rationally, they could live without laws or institutions. The following year Godwin's pioneering novel, The Adventures of Caleb Williams , was published.
    In 1797 Godwin married Mary Wollstonecraft but she died soon after their daughter was born. The following year he wrote Memoirs of the Author of a Vindication of the Rights of Women (1798). He also spent several years on the Life of Chaucer Godwin's political ideas had a great influence on writers such as Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron . Godwin and Shelley became close friends. However, their relationship was damaged when in 1814, Shelley fell in love and eloped with Mary, Godwin's sixteen-year-old daughter. In later life Godwin concentrated on writing novels, the most popular being

    WILLIAM GODWIN, (1756-1836)
    English philosopher, anarchist. The first mordern anarchist writer, friend of William Blake Works include: Enquiry Concerning Political Justice Caleb Williams Vancouver Sun
    Enquiry Concerning Political Justice The turning point in his career was the French Revolution, which spurred him to write his major work, Political Justice , completed in 1793. Though many were disillusioned after the early years of the Revolution, Godwin's liberalism remained intact. The publication of this work gained him a far-reaching contemporary fame. Although Godwin wrote indefatigably, only Political Justice is still a work of enduring fame. His Caleb Williams , a novel with a social purpose, is another of his works retaining some contemporary interest. (Irving Horowitz, The Anarchists , 1964, Dell Publishing)
