Abstract

Truby King was strongly influenced by the ideas of Herbert Spencer (1820-1903), the English philosopher and bio-anthropologist, who coined the phrase ‘survival of the fittest’. Simply put, Spencer maintained nature always worked in favour of useful adaptations and if individuals were able to make their own choices, progress was then not only possible but inevitable. As Superintendent of Seacliff Lunatic Asylum, King was almost always positive about patient recovery. Given the right food, the right environment, and the right treatment, illnesses would disappear. Of course he was realistic enough to recognise that some would lapse. Here is Truby King's copy of Spencer’s Education, Intellectual, Morals, and Physical with numerous annotations within.
