    Thomas Malthus was perceived in history as a man of one idea, of one law, namely, as the author of 'the law of population'. His ideas have been inspiring hot arguments and discussions for over 200 years. In our article we want to present Thomas Malthus as a profoundly decent man, social thinker, humanist and zealous servant of the ideals of Enlightenment.
