John Stuart Mill Applies the Principles of Liberty

Despite being written in 1869, the last chapter of John Stuart Mill’s On Liberty, titled Chapter V: Applications,” speaks directly to many 21st century controversies. I learned a lot from blogging my way through. Take a look: 

Also, don’t miss the posts I wrote on the earlier parts of On Liberty. I have collected the links by chapter in these bibliographic posts:

Chapter I: John Stuart Mill’s Defense of Freedom

Chapter II: John Stuart Mill’s Brief for Freedom of Speech

Chapter III: John Stuart Mill’s Brief for Individuality

Chapter IV: John Stuart Mill’s Brief for the Limits of the Authority of Society over the Individual

I actually blogged through Chapter I last after the other four chapters, completing the circle.
