Alternatives to Religion:John Stuart Mill

Creg Claeys present a biographical picture of British philosopher, economist and sometime Liberal M.P., John Stuart Mill.


The philosopher, economist and sometime Liberal M.P. John Stuart Mill was the most famous liberal thinker of the 19th , and a pioneering feminist thinker. In this talk Greg Claeys re-examines Mill's idea of secular progress, focussing on his most famous work, "On Liberty", and Mill's reasons for adhering both to Malthusianism and feminism; along with his growing interest in socialism and his concern to reconcile the demands for more equality and social justice with the dynamic energy of the liberal meritocratic ideal.
