Synopsis

The Fable of the Bees: Or Private Vices, Publick Benefits was published in 1705 by Mandeville, philosopher, political economist and satirist. It begins with a poem and continues with a number of essays and dialogues, and is all tied together by the startling and original idea that "private vices" (self-interest) lead to "publick benefits" (the development and operation of society). From that simple beginning, Mandeville saw that orderly social structures (such as law, language, the market, and even the growth of knowledge) were a spontaneous growth developing out of individual human actions.
