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."

More About John Stuart Mill


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! John Stuart Mill (1806-73) was educated by his father and through his influence obtained a clerkship at India House. He formed the Utilitarian Society which met to read and discuss essays, and in 1825 he edited Bentham s Treatise upon Evidence. In 1826 he suffered an acute mental crisis and found that poetry helped him recover the will to live, particularly the work of Wordsworth. Having reconsidered his aims and those of the Benthamite school, he met Harriet Taylor and she inspired a great deal of his philosophy. They married in 1851. Utilitarianism was published in 1861 but before that Mill published his System of Logic (1843), Principles of Political Economy (1848) and On Liberty (1839). His other works include his classic Autobiography (1873). Mill retired in 1858 and became the independent MP for Westminster from 1865 to 1868. He spent the rest of his life in France and died in Avignon.

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.
