Stephen Nathanson's clear-sighted abridgment of Principles of Political Economy, Mill's first major work in moral and political philosophy, provides a challenging, sometimes surprising account of Mill's views on many important topics: socialism, population, the status of women, the cultural bases of economic productivity, the causes and possible cures of poverty, the nature of property rights, taxation, and the legitimate functions of government

Considerations on representative government by John Stuart Mill ( )
201 editions published between 1861 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 4,271 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
Utilitarianism, Liberty, and Representative government. by John Stuart Mill ( Book )
299 editions published between 1901 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 3,689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The word utiliarianism was coined by Jeremy Bentham in 1781 in a letter to friend in which he said: "A new religion would be an odd sort of thing without a name." While the doctrine never quite became a religion, its thesis, as expressed by Mill in the first essay in this volume-that the good and right are to be defined as that which promotes happiness-became the dominant naturalistic theory of the nineteenth century and provided the moral basis for classical liberalism
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 )
403 editions published between 1011 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 3,506 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"--Préface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)

Auguste Comte was a French philosopher who developed the doctrine of positivism--which says that authentic knowledge is only what can be proven by the scientific method--in an attempt to ameliorate the melancholy brought on by the French revolution. 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

The autobiography of John Stuart Mill by John Stuart Mill ( )
46 editions published between 1873 and 2008 in English and held by 1,342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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. He was an exponent of utilitarianism, an ethical theory developed by Jeremy Bentham, although his conception of it was very different from Bentham's. 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
An examination of Sir William Hamilton's philosophy and of the principal philosophical questions discussed in his writings by John Stuart Mill ( Book )
119 editions published between 1865 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Among the philosophical writers of the present century in these islands, no one occupies a higher position than Sir William Hamilton. He alone, of our metaphysicians of this and the preceding generation, has acquired, merely as such, an European celebrity: while, in our own country, he has not only had power to produce a revival of interest in a study which had ceased to be popular, but has made himself, in some sense, the founder of a school of thought. The school, indeed, is not essentially new; for its fundamental doctrines are those of the philosophy which has everywhere been in the ascendant since the setting in of the reaction against Locke and Hume, which dates from Reid among ourselves and from Kant for the rest of Europe. But that general scheme of philosophy is split into many divisions, and the Hamiltonian form of it is distinguished by as marked peculiarities as belong to any other of its acknowledged varieties. My subject, therefore, is less Sir W . Hamilton, than the questions which Sir W . Hamilton discussed. It is, however, impossible to write on those questions in our own country and in our own time, without incessant reference, express or tacit, to his treatment of them."

Three essays on religion by John Stuart Mill ( Book )
51 editions published between 1874 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,177 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 ( )
15 editions published between 1879 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 978 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
