Editorial Reviews


"Anyone interested in the utilitarianism of Bentham and Mill will be pleased to have the essential readings in one volume and grateful to Mary Warnock for her informative and insightful introduction." William H. Shaw, San Jose State University <!--end-->

"The creed which accepts as the foundation of morals Utility, or the Greatest Happiness Principle, holds that actions are right in proportion as they tend to promote happiness, wrong as they tend to produce the reverse of happiness." John Stuart Mill, Utilitarianism

"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." John Stuart Mill, On Liberty

Book Description

This book combines John Stuart Mills key writings, Utilitarianism, On Liberty, and Essay on Bentham, with formative selections from Mills greatest influences, Jeremy Bentham and John Austin, and a discerning introduction written by the renowned ethics scholar Mary Warnock. This combination provides a thorough and perspicuous view of Mill's thought. An extensive bibliography of the best scholarship on Mill, Bentham, and Utilitarianism makes this book even more useful for students. This volume affords indispensable insight from and into one of the most profound and influential thinkers in Western philosophy.
