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.

PANNOMIAL FRAGMENTS is one of the most important works by Jeremy Bentham with great relevance to modern political debate. Jeremy Bentham accessed in the book justification of the laws that were to be perpetuating harm to the men.

He declared in the book that such laws were necessary to avert additional problems.

Jeremy Bentham's work produced great influence on utilitarianism, philosophy, jurist, and economics. 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 the deepest thoughts about the balance of freedom and law by Jeremy Bentham, one of the greatest thinkers of modern economics and philosophy on the planet.
