"This collection of original essays on John Stuart Mill's philosophy is the most comprehensive and most authoritative work on Mill in recent years. It should be a required purchase for any academic library and required reading for any Mill scholar." Herny R. West, International Philosophy Quarterly

By Joseph J Grenier on June 6, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
JS Mill's Philosophy on Utilitarianism is his best known work, as certainly was his Social Theory which established a place in History of Thought. I have read the chapters on Logic, Math, and Science which compose about a third to half of his book. His thought bears resemblances to Hume's, Berkeley's, and Locke's theories of Epistemology. There are few comparisons to Russell or Wittgenstein which were made. (Phiilosophy) of Logic is not covered well in this Companion book. Mill wrote an extra treatise on Logic that is seldom referred to within the pages of this book. That is unfortunate for me since my main interests are the logical thoughts of Russell and Wittgenstein. His logic may best be characterized by pre-analytic thought in the history of philosophy. This book still remains a useful introduction to Mill's philosophy on the Social Sciences and a touchstone to his logical thought.
