Principles of political economy, with some of their applications to social philosophy by John Stuart Mill( Book )
856 editions published between 1819 and 2013 in 13 languages and held by 7,834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume unites, for the first time, Books IV and V of Mill's great treatise on political economy with his fragmentary chapters on socialism. It shows him applying his classical economic theory to policy questions of abiding concern, particularly the desirability of sustained growth of national wealth and population versus a stationary state, the merits of capitalism versus socialism, and the expedient scope of government intervention in the competitive market economy. His answers to these questions have considerable relevance today, and they serve to illustrate the enduring power and imagination of his distinctive liberal utilitarian philosophy." "In his Introduction Jonathan Riley clarifies Mill's approach, considers what constitutes the Millian Utopia, and shows how examination of such an ideal society provides valuable insights into the structure of his philosophy."--Jacket

Representative government by John Stuart Mill( )
335 editions published between 1861 and 2013 in 11 languages and held by 6,494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this powerful work, John Stuart Mill sets forth representative government as the most sensible compromise between unreflective rule by the masses and the self-indulgence of the few. The reader of this volume senses that Mill is being pulled in opposing directions: steadfastly committed to majority rule with minority rights while at the same time being just enough of an aristocrat to believe that the masses need exemplars to emulate. This edition has been carefully formatted for today's e
A system of logic, ratiocinative and inductive; being a connected view of the principles of evidence, and the methods of scientific investigation by John Stuart Mill( Book )
562 editions published between 1011 and 2013 in 10 languages and held by 4,274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book makes no pretence of giving to the world a new theory of our intellectual operations. Its claim to attention, if it possess any, is grounded on the fact that it is an attempt not to supersede, but to embody and systematize, the best ideas which have been either promulgated on its subject by speculative writers, or conformed to by accurate thinkers in their scientific inquiries. To cement together the detached fragments of a subject, never yet treated as a whole; to harmonize the true portions of discordant theories, by supplying the links of thought necessary to connect them, and by disentangling them from the errors with which they are always more or less interwoven; must necessarily require a considerable amount of original speculation. To other originality than this, the present work lays no claim"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)

174 editions published between 1856 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 2,228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He influenced a number of eminent thinkers, including John Stuart Mill. Mill's survey of the main principles of his close friend's philosophy is engaging reading for anyone passionate about philosophy

John Stuart Mill (1806? 1873), British philosopher, political theorist, political economist, civil servant and Member of Parliament, was an influential classical liberal thinker of the 19th century.

John Stuart Mill was born in the Pentonville area of London, the eldest son of the Scottish philosopher and historian James Mill. John Stuart was educated by his father, with the advice and assistance of Jeremy Bentham and Francis Place

Three essays on religion by John Stuart Mill( Book )
56 editions published between 1874 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In these three essays, "Nature," "The Utility of Religion," and "Theism," published between 1850 and 1870, English social and political philosopher John Stuart Mill (1806-1873) gives his most sustained analysis of religious belief. Though not prepared to abandon the idea of an overall design in nature, Mill nonetheless argues that its violence and capriciousness militate against moral ends in nature's workings. Moreover, any designer of such a world as we experience it cannot be all powerful and all good, for nature is "too clumsily made and capriciously governed." However, since humankind, by and large, cannot, it seems, be deprived of religion, Mill espouses what he calls a "religion of humanity," whose concepts of justice, morality, and altruism are based on classical models and on the New Testament Sermon on the Mount rather than on the vindictive God of the Old Testament and the world-hating doctrines of St. Paul
Chapters on socialism by John Stuart Mill( )
18 editions published between 1879 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It was in the year 1869 that impressed with the degree in which, even during the last twenty years, when the world seemed wholly occupied with other matters, the socialist ideas of speculative thinkers had spread among the workers in every civilized country, Mr. Mill formed the design of writing a book on Socialism. Convinced that the inevitable tendencies of modern society must be to bring the questions involved in it always more and more to the front, he thought it of great practical consequence that they should be thoroughly and impartially considered, and the lines pointed out by which the
Nature, the Utility of religion, and Theism by John Stuart Mill( Book )
81 editions published between 1874 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The three following Essays on Religion were written at considerable intervals of time, without any intention of forming a consecutive series, and must not therefore be regarded as a connected body of thought, excepting in so far as they exhibit the Author's deliberate and exhaustive treatment of the topics under consideration"--Introduction.

Vindication of the rights of woman with strictures on political and moral subjects by Mary Wollstonecraft( Book )
51 editions published between 1929 and 1993 in English and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume brings together the major political writings of Mary Wollstonecraft as they appeared in the revolutionary 1790s." "It traces her passionate and indignant response to the excitement of the early days of the French Revolution and then her uneasiness at its later bloody phase. It reveals her developing understanding of women's involvement in a nation's political and social life and her growing awareness of the relationship between politics and economics, political institutions and the individual." "In personal terms, the works show her struggling with a belief in the perfectibility of human nature through rational education, a doctrine that appeared weaker to her under the onslaught of her own miserable experience and of the revolutionary massacres."--Jacket
