Editorial Reviews


Mill's On Liberty stands among the most important achievements in the history of political thought. His arguments are as pertinent today as ever. This much-needed new edition is especially useful, as it includes Steven M. Cahn's helpful annotations as well as an excellent Introduction and thought-provoking Study Guide by C. L. Ten. (Talisse, Robert B.)

Book Description

Published in 1859, this essay by British philosopher and economist John Stuart Mill (1806-73) remains a major influence upon liberal political thought today. In this work, Mill defines liberty as an absolute individual right, and defends freedom of speech as a necessary condition of social and intellectual progress. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Customer Reviews

I keep reading and rereading.
Written by one of England's greatest humanitarians, philosophers, and social scientists, this is one of the great classics in Western political philosophy.
Newton Ooi
Mill's argument is very strong - convincing not only as an inherent right but also as a practical advantage to individuals and society.
Bill R. Moore
