Classical Utilitarians by Jeremy Bentham

Book Description

This volume includes the complete texts of two of John Stuart Mill's most important works, Utilitarianism and On Liberty, and selections from his other writings, including the complete text of his Remarks on Bentham's Philosophy. The selection from Mill's A System of Logic is of special relevance to the debate between those who read Mill as an Act-Utilitarian and those who interpret him as a Rule-Utilitarian. Also included are selections from the writings of Jeremy Bentham, founder of modern Utilitarianism and mentor (together with James Mill) of John Stuart Mill. Bentham's Principles of Morals and Legislation had important effects on political and legal reform in his own time and continues to provide insights for political theorists and philosophers of law. Seven chapters of Bentham's Principles are here in their entirety, together with a number of shorter selections, including one in which Bentham repudiates the slogan often used to characterize his philosophy: The Greatest Happiness of the Greatest Number. John Troyer's Introduction presents the central themes and arguments of Bentham and Mill and assesses their relevance to current discussions of Utilitarianism. The volume also provides indexes, a glossary, and notes.

Books By Author Jeremy Bentham

Preparatory Principles by Jeremy Bentham Preparatory Principles, Hardback (November 2016)

The material in this volume constitutes a philosophical commonplace book, compiled by Bentham in the mid-1770s, in which he worked out the foundational ideas for his new science of legislation. This provides a remarkable record of the evolving ideas of a major legal philosopher at a formative stage of his career.

Writings on Political Economy by Jeremy Bentham Writings on Political Economy, Hardback (June 2016)

A new volume of the writings of Jeremy Bentham, including notes on his discussions of political economy and public finance, his reaction to the taxation of legal proceedings, and the denial of justice to the poor.

Book of Fallacies by Jeremy Bentham Book of Fallacies, Hardback (March 2015)

Jeremy Bentham identifies and criticizes around fifty fallacious arguments used by politicians to thwart measures of reform, and exposes the sinister interests that lead to their employment. This edition restores Bentham's original structure and previously-omitted sections, and remains as relevant to political debate today as it was in his time.

Defence of Usury by Jeremy Bentham Defence of Usury, Paperback (June 2013)

Originally published in 1787, this collection of letters argues against government control of the rate of interest.
