John Stuart Mill was an English philosopher and economist, who was also noted as a leading exponent of Utilitarianism. A prominent publicist of the reforming age of the nineteenth century, Mill is regarded today as one of the most influential thinkers of classical liberalism. He contributed widely to social theory, political theory and political economy. His famous conception of liberty justified the freedom of the individual in opposition to unlimited state and social control. Mill’s sympathetic attitude to contemporary socialism won him the esteem of the working classes as one of their intellectual champions. This comprehensive eBook presents Mill’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare essays, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
