9780141046945: On Liberty (Penguin Great Ideas)

In one of the most influential philosophical works ever writer, John Stuart Mill explores the risks and responsibilities of liberty. Examining the tyranny that can come both from government and from the herd-like opinion of the majority, Mill proposes a freedom to think, unite, and pursue our pleasures as the most important freedoms, as long as we cause no harm to others.

GREAT IDEAS. Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.

Review:

"Alexander should be commended for making this invaluable material accessible to scholars and students." -- Maria H. Moralies, Florida State University

"The introduction offers fresh insights...[and] the background readings provide much illumination into aspects of Mill's thought." -- Thomas Christiano, University of Arizona

"With an impressively compact and engaging introduction and a well-chosen selection of ancillary materials, Alexander's edition is an excellent choice." -- Eileen Gillooly, Columbia University

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.
