Publisher's Description

John Stuart Mill’s masterwork: A meditation on the relationship between the individual and society

One of the foremost thinkers of his age, John Stuart Mill was a steadfast advocate of individual freedom. This groundbreaking work explores the relationship between freedom and authority, between the citizen and the state, applying Mill’s concept of utilitarianism to the philosophy of governance. Individual liberties, Mill argues, are threatened by the very concept of democracy, which is continually at risk of veering into tyranny. Mill outlines the basic liberties to which individuals are entitled as well as the dangers of governmental intervention.
 
An enduring classic of political philosophy, On Liberty remains as relevant to government today as it was upon its first publication. A true cornerstone of liberalism, Mill’s treatise is a powerful argument for individuality.

Author Bio

John Stuart Mill (1806–1873) was an English philosopher and member of Parliament. He is widely considered to have been the most influential British philosopher of the nineteenth century. A strong proponent of utilitarianism and personal liberty, Mill argued that individuals should be granted full freedom of opinion and behavior. Despite his fundamental mistrust of government, Mill served in Parliament from 1865 to 1868.
