On Liberty

John Stuart Mill

Published in 1859, On Liberty details Mill's view that individuals should be left wholly free to engage in any activity, thought or belief that does not harm others.

A key text of political philosophy, On Liberty has been continuously in print since its first publication. (Summary by David Barnes).
