Overview

On Liberty (Barnes & Noble Library of Essential Reading) by John Stuart Mill

Published in 1859, John Stuart Mill s On Liberty presented one of the most eloquent defenses of individual freedom in nineteenth-century social and political philosophy and is today perhaps the most widely-read liberal argument in support of the value of liberty. Mill s passionate advocacy of spontaneity, individuality, and diversity, along with his contempt for compulsory uniformity and the despotism of popular opinion, has attracted both admiration and condemnation.

Perhaps this would be a happier world if more people subscibed to the philosophies of Mill. In this work Mill puts a high value on the concept of liberty and has many enlightening ideas on economics and Christianity. Mill is a little wordy and his chapters are long, but he is an accomplished writer and a great defender of liberty. I hope that more will read and adopt the philosophy of Mill in this generation and value liberty as much as Mill.
