Abstract

English historian,publicist and philosopher Thomas Carlylesle(1795-1881) created a lot of valuable works,but researchers mark out his critical Essays and among them “Signs of Time” is the best.In this work the writer tries to make the reader active.He describes Victorian period,uses intellectual heroes of the past and is against Mechanisation of the present.He gives many arguments for perfect description in order to maintain a contact with a reader and to make it clear for the reader the meaning of  Mechanism.So,he wants to emphasise mechanical nature of the society of that time,as these mechanisms become the target for every human.The Essay was written in 1829 in a journal Edinburgh Review and there should have been three book reviews,but he went far more beyond his particular aim and presented  increasing the admiration of technical and mechanical things and regarded it as a decay of society.
