Considerations on representative government by John Stuart Mill ( Book )
291 editions published between 1861 and 2010 in 11 languages and held by 2,866 libraries worldwide
"Those who have done me the honor of reading my previous writings will probably receive no strong impression of novelty from the present volume; for the principles are those to which I have been working up during the greater part of my life, and most of the practical suggestions have been anticipated by others or by myself. There is novelty, however, in the fact of bringing them together, and exhibiting them in their connection, and also, I believe, in much that is brought forward in their support. Several of the opinions, at all events, if not new, are for the present as little likely to meet with general acceptance as if they were. It seems to me, however, from various indications, and from none more than the recent debates on Reform of Parliament, that both Conservatives and Liberals (if I may continue to call them what they still call themselves) have lost confidence in the political creeds which they nominally profess, while neither side appears to have made any progress in providing itself with a better. Yet such a better doctrine must be possible; not a mere compromise, by splitting the difference between the two, but something wider than either, which, in virtue of its superior comprehensiveness, might be adopted by either Liberal or Conservative without renouncing any thing which he really feels to be valuable in his own creed. When so many feel obscurely the want of such a doctrine, and so few even flatter themselves that they have attained it, any one may, without presumption, offer what his own thoughts, and the best that he knows of those of others, are able to contribute toward its formation"--Preface.

Principles of political economy : with some of their applications to social philosophy by John Stuart Mill ( Book )
499 editions published between 1830 and 2010 in 12 languages and held by 2,387 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.
Autobiography of John Stuart Mill by John Stuart Mill ( Book )
79 editions published between 1873 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,854 libraries worldwide
Mill's autobiography deals with but one part of a life, the life of the mind-but a mind that ranks as one of the most remarkable and significant of the nineteenth century. It depicts the emergence of a brilliant child prodigy, the product of an extraordinary education that both hastened his development and brought him to the brink of suicide by the age of twenty-one; illumined with equal clarity is the story of John Stuart Mill's renewed commitment to life, and of the further conflicts that marked his long evolution toward maturity as a major philosopher and social thinker.
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 )
313 editions published between 1011 and 2009 in 8 languages and held by 1,627 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).

Three essays on religion by John Stuart Mill ( Book )
51 editions published between 1874 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 892 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.

An examination of Sir William Hamilton's philosophy and of the principal philosophical questions discussed in his writings by John Stuart Mill ( Book )
72 editions published between 1865 and 2008 in English and German and held by 758 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."

On liberty and other essays by John Stuart Mill ( Book )
15 editions published between 1926 and 2010 in English and Ukrainian and held by 654 libraries worldwide
The four essays here ... show Mill applying his liberal utilitarian philosophy to a range of issues that remain vital today - issues of the nature of ethics, the scope and limits of individual liberty, the merits and costs of democratic government, and the place of women in society. Contrary to the common view, these essays show Mill to be a systematic and consistent thinker rather than the muddled eclectic of traditional interpretations. Mill emerges as a thinker no less ambitious than Marx, and one whose concerns are as much our own as his. -Back cover.
