1991 0-88946-925-3
In the twenty years before and after 1900, Frank Byron Jevons, one of the last Victorian polymaths, gave himself successively to the study of classics, philosophy, sociology, history, anthropology, and comparative religion. He was also concerned with social and national issues, especially the education of the working classes and of women. This brief biography is an intellectual history in which each chapter explores specific themes in his life.
