一部在全球“人口爆炸”的21世纪重新焕发青春的人口学著作。

The book predicted a grim future, as population would increase geometrically, doubling every 25 years, but food production would only grow arithmetically (rising as 1,2,3,4, etc.), which would result in famine and starvation, unless births were controlled.As the world's population continues to grow at a frighteningly rapid rate, Malthus's classic warning against overpopulation gains increasing importance.ature which has in view no such extensive utility; the propensity to truck, barter, and exchange one thing for another.

《人口原理》从1798年发行第一版,到1872年共发行了七版。这足以说明由于这部著作深刻地反映了当时社会现实问题而引起人们的普遍关注。在1985年于法国巴黎召开的联合国人口统计学大会上,来自全球60多个国家的300多名代表,以99.8%的赞成票,通过了再版马尔萨斯的《人口原理》。《人口原理》这一200多年前的理论在当今全球“人口爆炸”的时代似乎又焕发了新的青春。

An Essay on the Principle of Population examines the tendency of human numbers to outstrip their resources, and argues that checks in the form of poverty, disease, and starvation are necessary to keep societies from moving beyond their means of subsistence. Malthus's simple but powerful argument was controversial in his time; today his name has become a byword for active concern about humankind's demographic and ecological prospects.

托马斯·罗伯特·马尔萨斯,英国人口学家和政治经济学家。他的《人口论原理》影响深远,至今在社会学和经济学领域仍有争论。

Thomas Robert Malthus was an English cleric and scholar, influential in the fields of political economy and demography.

近年来自然哲学的伟大发现出人意料、层出不穷,印刷术的普及加快了一般知识的传播,而锐意执著、挣脱枷锁的探索精神也在整个知识界乃至非知识界蔚然成风。在政治问题上也出现了一些令头晕目眩、振聋发聩的新奇见解,尤其是政治领域发生了一件惊天动地的大事——法国大革命,它犹如一颗炽热的彗星,似乎注定要给地球上畏缩不前的栖居者注入新的生命和活力,或者将他们烧尽焚毁。所有这一切让许多有识之士一致认为,我们正在跨入一个充满重大变革的时期,这些变革将在某种程度上决定人类的未来命运。

The great and unlooked for discoveries that have taken place of late years in natural philosophy; the increasing diffusion of general knowledge from the extension of the art of printing; the ardent and unshackled spirit of inquiry that prevails throughout the lettered, and even unlettered world; the new and extraordinary lights that have been thrown on political subjects, which dazzle, and astonish the understanding; and particularly that tremendous phenomenon in the political horizon the French Revolution, which, like a blazing comet, seems destined either to inspire with fresh life and vigour, or to scorch up and destroy the shrinking inhabitants of the earth, have all concurred to lead many able men into the opinion, that we were touching on a period big with the most important changes, changes that would in some measure be decisive of the future fate of mankind.
