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.

    “the end of man, or that which is pre­scribed by the eternal or im­mut­able dic­tates of reason, and not sug­ges­ted by vague and tran­si­ent de­sires, is the highest and most har­mo­ni­ous de­vel­op­ment of his powers to a com­plete and con­sist­ent whole;”

    The great writers to whom the world owes what re­li­gious liberty it pos­sesses, have mostly as­ser­ted free­dom of con­science as an in­de­feas­ible right, and denied ab­so­lutely that a hu­man be­ing is ac­count­able to oth­ers for his re­li­gious be­lief.

    “The grand, lead­ing prin­ciple, to­wards which every ar­gu­ment un­fol­ded in these pages dir­ectly con­verges, is the ab­so­lute and es­sen­tial im­port­ance of hu­man de­vel­op­ment in its richest di­versity.”
