One of the most influential thinkers in the history of classical liberalism, he contributed widely to social theory, political theory, and political economy.

John Stuart Mill (1806 - 1873) was a great liberal thinker of the nineteenth century, a noted philosopher, political theorist, and Member of Parliament. Mill was given a disciplined upbringing, his father deliberately shielding him from other children with the express aim of creating a philosophical genius to carry the mantle of utilitarianism, an ethical theory developed by Jeremy Bentham and in which Mill went on to develop his own conception.

This book should have been called The Education of John Stuart Mill. Mill also discuses, in length, the influences he was subjected to during the years. I found the book to be interesting and rather revealing. Mill was educated almost completely by his dad. Just to give an example of how demanding his dad was, Mill started learning classic Greek by the age of three. By around the age of twelve he already taught his younger brothers and sisters.

This book can be read in many ways, as a testimony of an unusual education, as a description of an era long gone by, and even as a sad love story. But it is above all a book about ideas, about the dramatic intellectual metamorphosis of John Stuart Mill.

Mill went through three stages in his intellectual transformation.

I'll call the first stage "technocratic optimism". In his youth, Mill was a zealous reformer, driven not by his love of humanity nor his nobleness, but by his conviction that utilitarian methods were all what it was needed to change the world. He denounced the "sentimentality", the "vague generalities" and the "declamations" of his intellectual rivals, who didn't share his optimism and accused him of being "hard-hearted" and "anti-population".

The second stage can be called "matured skepticism". In his thirties and forties, after a bout of depression, Mill became less confident of his reasoning tools, more conscious of the complexities of social change, and more sensitive to individual suffering. He also became a more cautious reformer: "all questions of political institutions are relative, not absolute, and different stages of human progress not only will have, but ought to have, different institutions". Paradoxically his greater love for humanity made him a less zealous reformer.

But Mill didn't become a conservative. He became a radical and entered the third stage of his metamorphosis, "radical liberalism". He chose a few worthy causes to fight for (the equality of women, the political rights of minorities, and the need of land reform in Ireland, etc.) and tried to advance them with unusual patience and strong determination. He was conscious that "no great improvements in the lot of mankind are possible until a great change takes place in the fundamental constitutions of their modes of thought". In his final years, he had the patience to do something about the modes of thought of his countrymen without expecting immediate results.

It is not easy to feel sympathetic about Mill. He doesn't have a sense of humor, and his earnestness is almost comical. But he is an honest and objective thinker. Besides, his intellectual transformation is a good example: I myself have already overcome stage one, and I am ready to leave stage two for stage three.

I am slightly overwhelmed by the enormity if the man's intellect. Impressed by his continuous development

This book should have been called The Education of John Stuart Mill. Mill's autobiography is mostly about Mill's education which made him one of the greatest thinkers of the nineteenth century. Mill also discuses, in length, the influences he was subjected to during the years. I found the book to be interesting and rather revealing. Mill was educated almost completely by his dad. Just to give an example of how demanding his dad was, Mill started learning classic Greek by the age of three. By around the age of twelve he already taught his younger brothers and sisters. Like every great thinker, Mill suffered from a severe depression, where he lost all interest in life. Mill thought the reasons for his depression were the neglect of his emotions and feelings by his dad, who didn't regard "feeling" as something important that needs to be developed. Another interesting thing to note is the development of Mill thinking along the years.

In conclusion, this book is recommended to people who are rather familiar with Mill's work and would like to expand their knowledge of Mill's education and how his thinking evolved during the years.

I enjoy JS Mills philosophy and enjoyed reading about his up bringing. It was a hard read, I found myself rereading paragraphs to understand the points he was trying to get across. Lots of old school grammar. The book has some good points, about why he is who he is, views on religion, social views, education, influence of his father, a general history of the time period.

The early parts about Mill's extraordinary education are particularly fascinating. Highly recommended.

Splendid!

I just received this book in the mail but unfortunately couldn't read it! The font is so ridiculously small that I would need a magnifying glass to read it. I'll be ordering a different version.
However the book is not split into chapters. Besides, the table of contents don't work properly on the Kindle Paperwhite.

Considering this Penguin edition of this classic is one of the most expensive, this unacceptable.

I usually like Penguin for printed books but this electronic version is very poor.
