Herbert Spencer as an Anthropologist
Mention the name of Herbert Spencer to the average person and, if he is familiar with it at all, he is likely to say that Spencer was a political theorist who advocated laissez faire, and might even recall Spencer as a sociologist. But it is unlikely that he would identify Spencer as an anthropologist.
