John Stuart Mill

On Liberty

John Stuart Mill was a prolific and well-regarded author and philosopher in his day, but perhaps his most enduring work is On Liberty, an essay developed over several years and with significant input from his wife. In it, he applies his views on the Utilitarian ethical theory to systems of society and governance. The result became one of the most influential essays on liberal political thought in modern history.
In On Liberty Mill addresses such familiar concepts as freedom of speech, the importance of individuality, and the limits of society’s influence on the individual. He caps the discussion with an application of these principals on problems of the day, including education and the economy.

    It was not so difficult to comprehend by comparing with the present circumstances.

    Liberty, as a prin­ciple, has no ap­plic­a­tion to any state of things an­terior to the time when man­kind have be­come cap­able of be­ing im­proved by free and equal dis­cus­sion.
    Jesper Bursøe Lethцитує3 роки тому
    The only part of the con­duct of any­one, for which he is amen­able to so­ci­ety, is that which con­cerns oth­ers. In the part which merely con­cerns him­self, his in­de­pend­ence is, of right, ab­so­lute. Over him­self, over his own body and mind, the in­di­vidual is sov­er­eign.
    Jesper Bursøe Lethцитує3 роки тому
    That prin­ciple is, that the sole end for which man­kind are war­ran­ted, in­di­vidu­ally or col­lect­ively, in in­ter­fer­ing with the liberty of ac­tion of any of their num­ber, is self-pro­tec­tion.
