'it is only the cultivation of individuality which produces, or can produce, well developed human beings'

Mill's four essays, 'On Liberty', 'Utilitarianism', 'Considerations on Representative Government', and 'The Subjection of Women' examine the most central issues that face liberal democratic regimes - whether in the nineteenth century or the twenty-first.They have formed the basis for many of the political institutions of the West since the late nineteenth century, tackling as they do the appropriate grounds for protecting individual liberty, the basic principles of ethics, the benefits and the costs of representative institutions, and the central importance of gender equality in society.

These essays are central to the liberal tradition, but their interpretation and how we should understand their connection with each other are both contentious.In their introduction Mark Philp and Frederick Rosen set the essays in the context of Mill's other works, and argue that his conviction in the importance of the development of human character in its full diversity provides the core to his liberalism and to any defensible account of the value of liberalism to the modern world.

    Classic economic philosophy text from the great liberal thinker John Stuart Mill. It's a fascinating read that bears many revisits over the years. This is a fine new edition in the OUP's world classics series and an indispensable reader for all those studying politics, philosophy and economics. For those who immerse themselves in the essays in this book, you can guarantee a well thumbed copy of it sitting on your bookshelf for years to come.

  • By Blackcatlover on 26 November 2015

    Beyond knowing that he was an early English philosopher and theorist and that 'of his own free will, on half a pint of shandy (he was) particular ill' I knew nothing about John Stuart Mill.This enormous work is undeniably brilliant, challenging, ahead of its time and packed with truisms... but it was also (to me at least) incredibly boring when read at length - though distinctly more palatable when taken in smaller doses.Unless you're studying philosophy or politics, or a combination of the two, then chances are you wont want to take this particular work to that mythical desert island.
