Herbert Spencer lived from 1820-1903 and was a sociologist and psychologist from 1858-1903. In the mid 19th century his ideas rivaled those of Charles Darwin. He was born in Derby, England on the 27th of April in 1820. He had 8 siblings but was the only one to survive past infancy. He wrote many things about sociology, and even how it related to the human body.
