An abolitionist and a champion of unfastened love and women’s rights would appear decidedly misplaced in nineteenth-century Texas, yet the sort of guy used to be Stephen Pearl Andrews (1812–1886), American reformer, civil rights proponent, pioneer in sociology, recommend of reformed spelling, legal professional, and whimsical thinker. for the reason that his existence reflected and sometimes expected a few of the reform events spawned not just in Texas yet within the usa within the 19th century, this primary biography of him sharply displays and elucidates his times.
The vitally important position Andrews performed within the abolition stream during this nation has now not heretofore been accorded him. After having witnessed slavery in Louisiana in the course of the 1830s, Andrews got here to Texas and commenced his profession as an abolitionist with an audacious try to unfastened the slaves there.
His singular profession, besides the fact that, comprised many extra actions than abolitionism, and so much have lengthy been forgotten via historians. He brought Pitman shorthand into the USA as a way of educating the uneducated to learn; his function in the neighborhood of contemporary instances, ny, used to be as very important as that of Josiah Warren, the “first American anarchist,” even if Andrews’s participation during this communal enterprise, in addition to the importance of recent instances itself, has been underestimated.
Other motives which Andrews supported incorporated unfastened love and the rights of girls, dramatized through his journalistic debate with Horace Greeley and Henry James, Sr., and via his endorsement of Victoria Woodhull because the first lady candidate for the Presidency of the us. those pursuits, along with his consequent involvement within the Beecher-Tilton Scandal, supply perception into a few of the extra colourful facets of nineteenth-century American reform movements.
Andrews’s assaults upon no matter what infringed on person freedom introduced him into different arenas—economic, sociological, and philosophical. The philosophical process he built incorporated between its tenets the sovereignty of the person, a technological know-how of society, a common language (his Alwato lengthy preceded Esperanto), the cohesion of the sciences, and a “Pantarchal usa of the World.” His philosophy hasn't ever sooner than been epitomized nor have its functions to later concept been considered.
“I have made it the enterprise of my existence to review social laws,” Andrews wrote. “I see now a brand new age starting to appear.” This biography of the dynamic reformer examines these social legislation and that still-unembodied new age. It reanimates a heretofore overlooked American reformer and casts new mild upon formerly unexplored bypaths of nineteenth-century American social background. The biography is totally documented, established partially upon a corpus of unpublished fabric within the country old Society of Wisconsin.
