Description

Jeremy Bentham, the founder of utilitarianism, made an important impact on several areas of thought and policy, including ethics, jurisprudence, political theory and social and administrative reform. This volume introduces his thought and links together the various components of his philosophy. It also provides information about common interpretations of Benthamism, and about its influence and modern relevance. John Dinwiddy was the general editor of "The Collected Works of Jeremy Bentham" and the author of "From Luddism to the First Reform Bill".show more
