John Stuart Mill, the eldest son of the philosopher, James Mill , was born in London on 20th May, 1806. Educated a home by his father, John Stuart had studied the works of Aristotle, Hobbes, Plato, Jeremy Bentham , Ricardo and Adam Smith by the time he had reached the age of twelve.
Mill was especially impressed by the work of Jeremy Bentham . He agreed with Bentham when he argued in Introduction to the Principles of Morals and Legislation (1789), that the proper objective of all conduct and legislation is "the greatest happiness of the greatest number". Mill became a Utilitarian and at the age of seventeen formed a discussion group called the Utilitarian Society
Mill also began having articles published in the Westminster Review , a journal founded by Jeremy Bentham and James Mill to propagate Radical views. John Stuart Mill also wrote for other newspapers and journals including the

John Stuart Mill
John Stuart Mill (1806-1873), British philosopher, economist, moral and political theorist, and administrator, was the most influential English-speaking philosopher of the nineteenth century. His views are of continuing significance, and are generally recognized to be among the deepest and certainly the most effective defenses of empiricism and of a liberal political view of society and culture. The overall aim of his philosophy is to develop a positive view of the universe and the place of humans in it, one which contributes to the progress of human knowledge, individual freedom and human well-being. His views are not entirely original, having their roots in the British empiricism of John Locke, George Berkeley and David Hume, and in the utilitarianism of Jeremy Bentham. But he gave them a new depth, and his formulations were sufficiently articulate to gain for them a continuing influence among a broad public.

In his early twenties Mill experienced a "mental crisis," in which he was overcome by intense depression and plagued by doubts concerning the causes to which he had previously been devoted, including the Benthamite philosophy of which he had become a leading spokesman. He believed that his education had been unduly narrow, and also feared that his ability to experience emotional excitement was inadequate. Although this period passed, it left a permanent imprint on Mill. Although he remained a Benthamite, he revised his earlier beliefs in important respects.
In 1830, Mill was introduced to Harriet Taylor, a woman who was married and the mother of several children. They developed a deep, unconventional, and probably platonic friendship that resulted in marriage 21 years later, following the death of her husband. Mill attributed to his wife, who died in 1858, a decisive influence on all his later work.
Mill stands as a bridge between the 18th-century concern for liberty, reason, and science and the 19th-century trend toward empiricism and collectivism. Mill's earliest important philosophical work, the

The particulars of Mill's life are too well known - as laid out in his famous Autobiography (1873) for instance - to be worth repeating here, so we will just rattle them out: son of the Ricardian economist James Mill , trained from an early age to be a genius, "lent" by his father to utilitarian philosopher Jeremy Bentham , became a utilitarian himself, followed his father into the British East India Company, broke with Bentham, had an existentialist crisis, turned to the doctrines of Saint-Simon and Comte , met Harriet Taylor and waited twenty years for her husband to die, became a Whig politician, etc., etc. J.S. Mill was an economist, a Classical economist whose magnificent 1848 restatement of Ricardo's theory was thought to be so conclusive that, in the beginning of a discussion on price theory, he confidently notes that: "Happily, there is nothing in the laws of Value which remains for the present or any future writer to clear up; the theory of the subject is complete: the only difficulty to be overcome is that of so stating it as to solve by anticipation the chief perplexities which occur in applying it." (J.S. Mill

He was given an extremely rigorous upbringing, and was deliberately shielded from association with boys his own age. His father, a follower of Bentham and an adherent of associationism , had as his explicit aim to create a genius intellect that would carry on the cause of utilitarianism and its implementation after he and Bentham were dead. His feats as a child were exceptional; at the age of three he was taught the Greek alphabet and long lists of Greek words with their English equivalents. By the age of eight he had read Aesop 's Fables

Filosofo ed economista, figlio di James, n. il 20 maggio 1806 a Londra, m. l'8 maggio 1873 ad Avignone. Il cognome Stuart lo adottò per riconoscenza al facoltoso Sir John Stuart che aveva sovvenzionato suo padre. Educato e istruito personalmente dal padre, fu di una precocità straordinaria. A 3 anni iniziò lo studio del greco. Fra i 5-12 anni percorse gran parte della letteratura greco-latina (Senofonte, Platone, Esopo, Erodoto, Plutarco, Diogene Laerzio, ecc.), autori inglesi (Shakespeare, Wlter Scott, Campbell, ecc.), oltre gli elementi di aritmetica, geometria, algebra, calcolo differenziale. Conobbe quindi la Rethorica e parte dell' Organon di Aristotele, alcuni trattati di logica fra cui la Computatio sive logica di Hobbes, la History of British Indi di suo padre, le opere di Ricardo e Smith. A 14 anni cessarono le lezioni dirette del padre. Mill approva sostanzialmente il suo esperimento educativo che gli permise «di partire, nella produzione intellettuale, con il vantaggio di un quarto di secolo sui suoi contemporanei» ( Autobiography a ed., Londra 1873, pp. 30-31). Gi mancò tuttavia, accanto al precoce sviluppo intellettuale, una pari cultura fisica e del sentimento; e se di nobile livello morale, la sua educazione fu, per il sopraggiunto agnosticismo del padre, areligiosa: «Io sono fra i rarissimi, in questo paese, che abbiano, non dico abbandonato, bensì mai avuto una fede religiosa» (

John Stuart Mill Biography. John Stuart Mill was a British philosopher and economist,prominent as a publicist in the reforming age of the 19th century.
John Stuart Mill:
John Stuart Mill was a British philosopher and economist, prominent as a publicist in the reforming age of the 19th century. He remains of lasting interest as a logician and an ethical theorist.
Early life and career.
The eldest son of the British historian, economist, and philosopher James Mill, he was born on May 20, 1806, in his father's house in Pentonville, London. He was educated exclusively by his father, who was a strict disciplinarian. By his eighth year he had read in the original Greek Aesop's Fables, Xenophon's Anabasis, While the training the younger Mill received has aroused amazement and criticism, its most important aspect was the close association it fostered with the strenuous character and vigorous intellect of his father. From his earliest days he spent much time in his father's study and habitually accompanied him on his walks. He thus inevitably acquired many of his father's speculative opinions and his father's way of defending them. But he did not receive the impress passively and mechanically. The duty of collecting and weighing evidence for himself was at every turn impressed upon the boy. His childhood was not unhappy, but it was a strain on his constitution and he suffered from the lack of natural, unforced development. From May 1820 until July 1821

John Stuart Mill
British Philosopher and Economist
He received a rigorous education under his father, James Mill (1773-1836), and Jeremy BENTHAM (1748-1832), who were close friends and together had founded UTILITARIANISM. John Stuart Mill's own philosophy, influenced by his wife, Harriet Taylor, developed into a more humanitarian doctrine than that of utilitarianism's founders: he was sympathetic to socialism, and was a strong advocate of women's rights and such political and social reforms as proportional representation, labor unions, and farm cooperatives. In logic he formulated rules for the process of induction, and he stressed the method of EMPIRICISM as the source of all knowledge. On Liberty (1859) is probably his most famous work. Among his other books are Principles of Political Economy (1848), Utilitarianism (1863), and his celebrated Autobiography (1873). One of the most important liberal thinkers of the 19th cent., Mill strongly influenced modern economics, politics, and philosophy. See Also: Index Interactive ... Feedback

Sometimes their reason at other times their prejudices or superstitions: often their social affections, not seldom their antisocial ones, their envy or jealousy, their arrogance or contemptuousness: but most commonly, their desires or fears for themselves their legitimate or illegitimate self-interest.

John Stuart Mill
Friend to liberty and philosopher of diversity, John Stuart Mill remains an intriguing democratic theorist. Although he is best remembered for his utilitarianism, I believe his greatest contribution to modern thought is his emphasis on the educative and idealistic components of democracy. Better than any of his contemporaries, Mill painted democracy as an almost spiritual force, one that cultivated virtue and independence in its citizens and progress in its societies. Before JFK invoked the power of the frontier, Mill articulated the need for common endeavor in democratic society. Mill's faith in and love for both the democratic process , as the best means of preserving liberty, diversity, individuality, and civic identity, and democratic progress , as the best means of elevating individuals to a higher state of integrity, inclusion, and compassion, recall the best in our own democratic experiment. Like no other philosopher, Mill makes real the promise of democratic life. Visit the Mill Back to the Library var site="sm6ghostmachine"

John Stuart Mill
These old goals he wanted replaced was the utilitarian notion of happiness through the accumulation of stuff. Mill opposed this notion and began to reject the utilitarian rational thinking after his nervous breakdown that was brought about when Mill asked himself, "What would happen when all my goals are realized?"
Mill was also interested in such life betterment reforms as profit sharing and producer owned cooperatives. However, he did not think of socialism as a viable solution because of the egoism inherent in mankind. Mill proved insensitive to the inequalities of capitalism in that he thought the lower classes could be made smaller through population control. His theory of "trickle down" economics did prove to a higher standard of living for all, but as it pushed the GNP outward, it widened the gap between the working class and the elite. Furthermore, while an idea of upward mobility may have been perceived, the actual problem of inequality never actually went away. This view continues to inspire capitalist parties, who are less sensitive to outcome inequality than socialist parties, and emphasize instead equal opportunity. The basic conflict between views of Mill and David Ricardo is still considered to have begun the modern debates on political economy.

Life and Writings Utilitarian Society, and, for some few years, he was one of "a small knot of young men" who adopted his father's philosophical and political views "with youthful fanaticism." A position under his father in the India Office had secured him against the misfortune of having to depend on literary work for his livelihood; and he found that office-work left him ample leisure for the pursuit of his wider interests. He was already coming to be looked upon as a leader of thought when, in his twenty-first year, the mental crisis occurred which is described in his Autobiography . This crisis was a result of the severe strain, physical and mental, to which he had been subjected from his earliest years. He was "in a dull state of nerves;" the objects of his life for which he had been trained and for which he had worked lost their charm; he had "no delight in virtue, or the general good, but also just as little in anything else;" a constant habit of analysis had dried up the fountains of feeling within him. After many months of despair he found, accidentally, that the capacity for emotion was not dead, and "the cloud gradually drew off". Another important factor in his life was Mrs. Taylor, who co-authored pieces with him. He maintained a close relationship with her for many years while she was married. When her husband died, Mill married her in 1851. His work in connection with the literary journals was enormous. He wrote articles almost without number and on an endless variety of subjects (philosophical, political, economic, social). They began with

John Stuart Mill
"Born in London in 1806, son of James Mill, philosopher, economist and senior official in the East India Company. Mill gave a vivid and moving account of his life, and especially of his extraordinary education, in the Autobiography 1873 that he wrote towards the end of his life. Mill led an active career as an administrator in the East India Company from which he retired only when the Company's administrative functions in India were taken over by the British government following the Mutiny of 1857. In addition, he was a Liberal MP for Westminster 1865-8, and as a young man in the 1830s edited the London and Westminster Review , a radical quarterly journal. He died at Aix-En-Provence in 1873. Mill was educated by his father, with the advice and assistance of Jeremy Bentham and Francis Place. He learned Greek at three, Latin a little later; by the age of 12, he was a competent logician and by 16 a well-trained economist. At 20 he suffered a nervous breakdown that persuaded him that more was needed in life than devotion to the public good and an analytically sharp intellect. Having grown up a utilitarian , he now turned to Coleridge , Wordsworth and Goethe to cultivate his aesthetic sensibilities. From 1830 to his death, he tried to persuade the British public of the necessity of a scientific approach to understanding social, political and economic change while not neglecting the insights of poets and other imaginative writers.
