A Spectator of Mankind

The Spectator, daily publication as "part of the tea equipage," founded by Joseph Addison & Richard Steele in 1711, tried "to bring philosophy out of the closets and libraries, schools and colleges." The key publisher Addison wrote about his lifestyle or editor's policy on the first issue:

I live in the world rather as a spectator of mankind than as one of the species.
私は人類の一人としてよりもむしろその種の観察者としてこの世に生きている。
(ジョゼフ・アディソン)
