Dismal Science

Dismal Science Definition

The dismal science is another, often derogatory, name for economics devised by the Victorian historian Thomas Carlyle. The term is an inversion of the phrase "gay science", meaning "life-enhancing skills". This was a familar expression at the time, and was later adopted as the title of a book by Nietzsche.
