On Liberty: And Other Essays

( 16 )

Overview


This influential work from British philosopher and politician John Stuart Mill, complemented by his essays on logic, politics and economy, was a radical assertion when it was first published in 1859. A core text in the development of liberalism in England and the U.S., many of Mill’s famous political ideas – “The Harm Principle,” “Tyranny of the Majority,” and the components of human liberty – still spur debate and inspire discussion in political circles today.

    Liberty, On Liberty

    In an attempt to examine individual freedoms, John Stuart Mill provides his utilitarian idea of a strong protection of rights in On Liberty. Mill outlines what he considers to be the major influencing factors that determine societies¿ power and individual rights, and produces what he considers to be the most significant development in his discussion: his belief that man should have ultimate sovereignty on his own decisions as long as they do not harm anyone else. With this ¿harm principle¿ in mind, Mill discloses three individual liberties that are of grave importance: freedom of thought/opinion/speech, freedom of action and freedom to unite. He provides an overview of his perspectives on the right to these personal freedoms and the burden of societal and governmental restriction upon these freedoms. Mill also recognizes that the only appropriate application of societal or governmental power should be in order to protect, and that outside of the function of providing a means for self-protection for each individual, society as a whole should not impose power that influences man's capacity for free choice. In summary, I believe this particular essay by Mill to be a crucial link in the development of individual freedoms. On Liberty, to me, is an endeavor to illustrate the ideas and theories of a man ahead of history, which brings about a series of important ideas and thoughts that outline what individual freedoms truly are.

    Brilliant

    John Stuart Mill has a grasp on Liberty and a fearlessness in communicating it that is unmatched. I read some of the reviews on here, such as from that "composition teacher" who calls John's agruements "week" and was depressed that people miss the points here. Liberty for all, one day I hope all people understand Liberty as John did.
