The most important aspect of the movement for administrative reform was the claim that both the army and the government needed to be organized on good, sound ‘business principles’. A member of the Metaphysical Society : Sir James Thomas Knowles KCVO., 1831-1908, was an English architect and editor. In 1870 he succeeded Dean Alford as editor of the Contemporary Review, but left it in 1877 owing to the objection of the proprietors to the insertion of articles attacking Theism and founded the Nineteenth Century. Both periodicals became very influential under him (Wikipedia). The Metaphysical Society existed between 1868 and 1880, and was the creation of James Knowles, the publisher of the Nineteenth Century journal. Many of the early contributors to The Nineteenth Century were members of the Metaphysical Society. The journal was intended to publish debate by leading intellectuals. In 1901, the title was changed to The Nineteenth Century and After. Its interests were the belief in science, immortality of the soul, morality, miracles, Christianity, etc. Explaining the demise of the Metaphysical Society, Tennyson remarked it was because after ten years of strenuous effort no one had succeeded in even defining metaphysics, whilst according to Dean Stanley, 'We all meant the same thing if we only knew it'.
