John Stuart Mill

Look Inside. Together these two essays mark the philosophic cornerstone of democratic morality and represent a thought-provoking search for the true balance between the rights of the individual and the power of the state. Thoroughly schooled in the principles of the utilitarian movement founded by Jeremy Bentham, John Stuart Mill nevertheless brings his own unique intellectual energy to issues such as individual freedom, equality, authority, happiness, justice, and virtue.

Utilitarianism brilliantly expounds a pragmatic ethic based on one controversial proposition: actions are right only if they promote the common good and wrong if they do not. Together they provide the moral and theoretical justification for liberal democracy as we know it, and their incalculable influence on modern history testifies not only to the force of their arguments, but also to the power ideas can have over human affairs.

On Liberty

This chapter offers an overview of some of the most significant aspects of J. Keywords: John Stuart Mill , utilitarianism , rule utilitarianism , pleasure , hedonism , liberalism , socialism , democracy , elitism , utopianism. The renown of John Stuart Mill —73 as a moral, social, and political philosopher rests largely on works that he published relatively late in life, well after A System of Logic 1st edn. These works have spawned a vast interpretative literature. In keeping with the general approach of this volume, in what follows I will present a specific and therefore controversial interpretation of Mill. As much account will be taken of competing readings as space permits, but many important contributions to the secondary literature will inevitably be neglected.

Mill's mission in writing On Liberty can perhaps be best understood by looking at how he discussed his work in his Autobiography.

On Liberty, Utilitarianism and Other Essays

He was prominent as a publicist in the reforming age of the 19th century, and remains of lasting interest as a logician and an ethical theorist. He was educated exclusively by his father, who was a strict disciplinarian. He had also read a great deal of history in English. At the age of eight he started Latin , the geometry of Euclid , and algebra and began to teach the younger children of the family. His main reading was still history, but he went through all the Latin and Greek authors commonly read in the schools and universities and, by the age of 10 could read Plato and the Athenian statesman Demosthenes with ease. In the following year he was introduced to political economy and studied the work of the Scottish political economist and philosopher Adam Smith and that of the English economist David Ricardo. While the training the younger Mill received has aroused amazement and criticism , its most important aspect was the close association it fostered with the strenuous character and vigorous intellect of his father.
