Orthodoxy (1908) is a book by G. K. Chesterton that has become a classic of Christian apologetics. Chesterton considered this book a companion to his other work, Heretics, writing it expressly in response to G.S. Street's criticism of the earlier work, "that he was not going to bother about his theology until I had really stated mine."In the book's preface Chesterton states the purpose is to "attempt an explanation, not of whether the Christian faith can be believed, but of how he personally has come to believe it." In it, Chesterton presents an original view of Christian religion. He sees it as the answer to natural human needs, the "answer to a riddle" in his own words, and not simply as an arbitrary truth received from somewhere outside the boundaries of human experience. The book was written when Chesterton was an Anglican. He converted to Catholicism 14 years later. Chesterton chose the title, Orthodoxy, to focus instead on the plainness of the Apostles' Creed, though he admitted the general sound of the title was "a thinnish sort of thing." Chesterton (The Man Who Knew Too Much) capped his brilliant literary career with this exploration of "right thinking," and how it led to his acceptance of the Christian faith. Although this is a very personal account of his conversion, Chesterton makes it clear he came to a rational decision based upon his scholarly examination of Christianity's arguments, intending to provide a "positive" companion to the previous Heretics.... Gilbert Keith Chesterton, KC*SG (29 May 1874 - 14 June 1936), better known as G. K. Chesterton, was an English writer, poet, philosopher, dramatist, journalist, orator, lay theologian, biographer, and literary and art critic. Chesterton is often referred to as the "prince of paradox."Time magazine has observed of his writing style: "Whenever possible Chesterton made his points with popular sayings, proverbs, allegories-first carefully turning them inside out." Chesterton is well known for his fictional priest-detective Father Brown, and for his reasoned apologetics. Even some of those who disagree with him have recognized the wide appeal of such works as Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man.Chesterton, as a political thinker, cast aspersions on both Progressivism and Conservatism, saying, "The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected."Chesterton routinely referred to himself as an "orthodox" Christian, and came to identify this position more and more with Catholicism, eventually converting to Catholicism from High Church Anglicanism. George Bernard Shaw, Chesterton's "friendly enemy" according to Time, said of him, "He was a man of colossal genius." Biographers have identified him as a successor to such Victorian authors as Matthew Arnold, Thomas Carlyle, Cardinal John Henry Newman, and John Ruskin.

G. K. Chesterton's Heretics was first published in 1905, with Orthodoxy following in 1908. Chesterton viewed them as companions to one another, as Orthodoxy was written as a response to criticism he had received for Heretics. This edition contains both works while preserving Chesterton's original text (and British spelling conventions).

Die Debatten um die Reproduktionsmedizin und die Erblichkeit der Intelligenz werfen Fragen auf nach der Kontinuität eugenischer Praktiken, d. h. der Optimierung menschlicher Eigenschaften durch die Steuerung des Fortpflanzungsverhaltens. Dieses Programm ist eng verknüpft mit dem »Dritten Reich«, Zwangssterilisationen und der Vernichtung »unwerten Lebens«. Doch schon vor Beginn der Naziherrschaft warnten Autoren wie Aldous Huxley und Gilbert Keith Chesterton hellsichtig vor den Gefahren der Eugenik. Chestertons Essay "Eugenik und andere Übel" zeigt grundlegende Probleme eugenischen Denkens auf und liegt nun erstmals auf deutsch vor. Thomas Lemke erläutert den historischen Kontext und zeigt, daß Chestertons Mahnungen nichts von ihrer Aktualität verloren haben.
