Havelock Ellis

English physician, who stood at the origins of sociology as a scientific discipline.
At the present day the crude theory of the sexual impulse held on one side, and the ignorant rejection of theory altogether on the other side, are beginning to be seen as both alike unjustified.More Havelock Ellis quotes [09/11/2011 03:09:00]
Man lives by imagination.More Havelock Ellis quotes [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
It is curious how there seems to be an instinctive disgust in Man for his nearest ancestors and relations. If only Darwin could conscientiously have traced man back to the Elephant or the Lion or the Antelope, how much ridicule and prejudice would have been spared to the doctrine of Evolution.More Havelock Ellis quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The aesthetic pleasure of dance is a secondary reflection of the primary, vital joy of courtship.More Havelock Ellis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I regard sex as the central problem of life. And now that the problem of religion has practically been settled, and that the problem of labor has at least been placed on a practical foundation, the question of sex—with the racial questions that rest on it—stands before the coming generations as the chief problem for solution. Sex lies at the root of life, and we can never learn to reverence life until we know how to understand sex.More Havelock Ellis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
