On the larger plane of the general development of fiction, Conrad has bolstered anti-psychologic and anti-naturalistic trends—at a time when naturalism and psychology in the novel ruled supreme. Paradoxically, this avowed individualist and agnostic left a heritage of social and metaphysical concerns. The concentration on types and problems rather than exceptions and psychological subtleties is also a part of his legacy. Whenever we encounter a contemporary novel which deals with moral issues—not by way of emphasizing the biological and psychological uniqueness of every person, but by way of looking for the core of [the] common human condition—we may suppose that it runs parallel, or even belongs to the Conrad tradition.
Naturalistic novelists were ready to supplant, without qualms, the newly discovered laws of biology for the old moral dogmas. Popularized Nietzsche and fashionable Wilde were understood as champions of the idea that the rules of the moral game can and should be changed at will: a strong, independent, self-sufficient man’s will. And many a writer was inclined to the escapist gesture of turning his back on the whole hideous and nasty world. Conrad belonged to neither of these groups. He was, like Turgenev and James, conscious that the traditions of enlightened generations were falling apart.
