Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These two essays by John Stuart Mill, England's greatest nineteenth-century philosopher, are the fruit of six hundred years of progressive thought about individual rights and the responsibilities of society. Together they provide the moral and theoretical justification for liberal democracy as we know it, and their incalculable influence on modern history testifies not only to the force of their arguments, but also to the power ideas can have over human affairs.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. xli-xliii).

About the Author

Sir Isaiah Berlin, formerly Warden of Wolfson College, Oxford, is author of a biography of Karl Marx and distinguished volumes of essays on philosophy and politics, the most recent of which is The Crooked Timber of Humanity.
