Jeremy Bentham was a British philosopher, jurist, social reformer and the founder of modern utilitarianism. He is in the row with the greatest thinkers Adam Smith, John Stuart Mill, John Keynes, John Locke, and Alfred Marshall. Their thoughts had strong influence on building the foundation of the United States and its endeavor of open society.

Jeremy Bentham invented the axiom of the greatest happiness of the greatest number. His writings emphasised the pursuit of happiness and freedom and became popular in the new republics of America and the other counties.

Grammar and Language embrace a far wider range of subjects. Jeremy Bentham published the essays in FRAGMENTS ON UNIVERSAL GRAMMAR 1813 and 1821. Bentham's object was simply to include his observations on Grammar within an extensive work on Language. Jeremy Bentham's work produced great influence on utilitarianism, philosophy, jurist, and economics. His view became widely recognised as the foremost philosophical voice of political radicalism and his influence has been felt in nearly every field of the humanities and social sciences.

This book is one of the most important ones about logic and language and grammar by Jeremy Bentham, one of the greatest thinkers of modern economics and philosophy on the planet.
