John Stuart Mill The classic liberal philosopher of nineteenth century England, John Stuart Mill, used Considerations on Representative Government to call for reforms to Parliament and voting, calling for proportional representation, the Single Transferable Vote, and the extension of suffrage. Mill was a renowned political theorist and economist, a Member of Parliament, and one of the greatest advocates utilitarianism.
John Stuart Mill On Liberty is a philosophical work by 19th century English
philosopher John Stuart Mill, first published in 1859. To the Victorian readers
of the time it was a radical work, advocating moral and economic freedom of
individuals from the state.
Perhaps the most memorable point made by Mill in this work, and his basis for
liberty, is that "Over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is
sovereign". Mill is compelled to say this in opposition to what he calls the
"tyranny of the majority", wherein through control of etiquette and morality,
society is an unelected power that can do horrific things. Mill's work could be
considered a reaction to this social control by the majority and his advocacy of
individual decision-making over the self. The famous 'Harm Principle' is also
articulated in this work: people can do anything they like as long as it does
not harm others. All branches of liberalism—as well as other political
ideologies—consider this to be one of their core principles. However, they often
disagree on what exactly constitutes harm.
On Liberty was an enormously influential work; the ideas presented
within it remain the basis of much political thought since. Aside from the
popularity of the ideas themselves, it is quite short and its themes easily
accessible to a non-expert. It has remained in print continuously since its
initial publication. To this day, a copy of On Liberty has been passed to
the president of the British Liberals and then Liberal Democrats as a symbol of
office and succession from the party that Mill helped found.

John Stuart Mill It is a biographical book. An autobiography (from the Greek, - bios life + graphein to write) is a written account of the life of a person written by that person. The word 'autobiography' was first used deprecatingly by William Taylor in 1797 in the English periodical the Monthly Review, when he suggested the word as a hybrid but condemned it as 'pedantic'; but its next recorded use was in its present sense by Robert Southey in 1809. The form of autobiography however goes back to antiquity. Biographers generally rely on a wide variety of documents and viewpoints; an autobiography, however, may be based entirely on the writer's memory. Closely associated with autobiography (and sometimes difficult to precisely distinguish from it) is the form of memoir.
John Stuart Mill In this book author formulated the five principles of inductive reasoning that are known as Mill's methods. This work is important insofar as it outlines the empirical principles author would use to justify his moral and political philosophies. An article in "Philosophy of Recent Times" has described this book as an "attempt to expound a psychological system of logic within empiricist principles.
