"In this volume, Wendy Donner and Richard Fumerton examine John Stuart Mill's primary philosophical writings to get to the very heart of his ideas and his legacy." "The volume begins with an overview of Mills's life, work, and reputation, examining the historical context of the nineteenth century that shaped his thinking and the relevance of his philosophy to contemporary readers. In Part I, Wendy Donner explores the main components of Mill's writings in ethics and political philosophy. In Part II, Richard Fumerton discusses Mill's work in logic, metaphysics, and epistemology, focusing on an accessible account of those views Mill himself was most concerned to defend." "This volume is an accessible guide for students, researchers, teachers, and general readers, aiming throughout to reveal the fundamental elements underpinning the intricate weave of Mill's thought."--BOOK JACKET.
