 MONSTER - LoveToKnow Article on MONSTER
In zoology, monsters or monstrous births are the subject of Animal Teratology, ~a department of morphological science treating of deviations from the normal development of the embryo.
The doctrine of pre-formation (see HEREDITY) obsessed biological science until 1759 when C. Wolff overthrew it, and Harveys advance was not pursued, except that a number of anatomists published careful studies and descriptions of monsters or monstrous organs.
A discussion almost as memorable as that between E. St Hilaire and Cuvier on specific types was pursued in the French Academy from 1724 to 1743, J. Winslow, who supported the current pre-formationist view, having the better of the argument with Louis Lmery, who was almost alone in a rational interpretation of monstrosities.

The other important fact is the emergence of some interest in political economy as a science and the institution of college chairs devoted to the subject.
More widely read were the Elements of Political Economy (1865) by Professor A. Perry, of Williams College, which ran through many editions, and The Science of Wealth; a Manual of Political Economy (1866) by Professor Amasa Walker, of Amherst.
Less important were E. Lawton’s Lectures on Science, Politics, Morals, and Society (1862) and President J. Champlin’s Lessons on Political Economy (1868).
