Item description for Three Essays on Religion: Nature, the Utility of Religion, Theism (Great Books in Philosophy) by John Stuart Mill...

Published between 1850 and 1870, English social and political philosopher John Stuart Mill (1806-1873) offers his most sustained analysis of religious belief. Though not prepared to abandon the idea of an overall design in nature, Mill nonetheless argues that its violence and capriciousness mitigate against moral ends in nature's workings. Moreover, any designer of such a world as we experience cannot be all powerful and all good, for nature is "too clumsily made and capriciously governed."

Reviews - What do customers think about Three Essays on Religion: Nature, the Utility of Religion, Theism (Great Books in Philosophy)?

A must for educated people.  Feb 12, 2010
For someone for whom english is not his native language it is not easy to read. Yet it contains three classical masterpieces of philosophical stature. It is helpful to know that it can be read as a sceptical comment on the proposition made by various philosophers that inspite of the almighty and benign god and the sorrow we see we live in the best possible world.
