Nicholas Capaldi discusses John Stuart Mill: A Biography.

—from the publisher's website Nicholas Capaldi’s biography of John Stuart Mill traces the ways in which Mill’s many endeavours are related and explores the significance of Mill’s contribution to metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, social and political philosophy, the philosophy of religion, and the philosophy of education. He shows how Mill was groomed for his life by both his father James Mill, and Jeremy Bentham, the two most prominent philosophical radicals of the early nineteenth century. Yet Mill revolted against this education and developed friendships with both Thomas Carlyle and Samuel Taylor Coleridge who introduced him to Romanticism and political conservatism.

Nicholas Capaldi reveals just how deep her impact was on Mill’s thinking about the emancipation of women. (timspalding)… (more)
