Description

The shortest novel by far of Charles Dickens, Hard Times is also one of his most idea based works. In it, he launches a scathing attack on the prevailing fashion of believing in Utilitarianism, a philosophy that proposed the goal of society should be "the greatest good for the greatest number of people." Dickens felt that such a philosophy saw people as mere statistics and not as individuals.show more
