No image available

One of the greatest prodigies of his era, John Stuart Mill (1806-73) was studying arithmetic and Greek by the age of three, as part of an astonishingly intense education at his father’s hand. Intellectually brilliant, fearless and profound, he became a leading Victorian liberal thinker, whose works – including On Liberty, Utilitarianism, The Subjection of Women and this Autobiography – are among the crowning achievements of the age. A moving account of an extraordinary life, this great autobiography reveals a man of deep integrity, constantly searching for truth.
