The Young Intellectuals created modern liberalism.
Who was the biggest influence on the Young Intellectuals though?
H.G. Wells wrote over 100 novels, sold millions of copies and was the most influential author in the English language of the early 20th century. Along with Jules Verne, Wells was the father of modern science fiction. He was a futurist, the apostle of free love and the champion of the progressive World State. More than almost anyone else, H.G. Wells imagined the 20th century. And yet, the influence of Wells as a public intellectual is strangely ignored in spite of his enormous literary output.
The Time Machine (1895)
The Wonderful Visit (1895)
The Island of Doctor Moreau (1896)
The Invisible Man (1897)
The War of the Worlds (1898)
Wells published his best-selling novel The Time Machine in the 1890s and kept going until his death in the 1940s.
