It may be useful that there should be some record of an education which was unusual and remarkableJohn Stuart Mill (1806-73), philosopher, economist, and political thinker, was the most prominent figure of nineteenth century English intellectual life and his work has continuing significance for contemporary debates about ethics, politics and economics. His father, James Mill, a close associateof the utilitarian philosopher Jeremy Bentham, assumed responsibility for his eldest son's education, teaching him ancient Greek at the age of three and equipping him with a broad knowledge of the physical and moral sciences of the day.Mill's Autobiography was written to give an account of the extraordinary education he received at the hands of his father and to express his gratitude to those he saw as influencing his thought, but it is also an exercise in self-analysis and an attempt to vindicate himself against claims that hewas the product of hothousing. The Autobiography also acknowledges the substantial contribution made to Mill's thinking and writings by Harriet Taylor, whom he met when he was twenty-four, and married twenty-one years later, after the death of her husband. The Autobiography helps us understand morefully some of the principal commitments that Mill's political philosophy has become famous for, in particular his appreciation of the diversity, plurality, and complexity of ways of life and their possibilities.This edition of the Autobiography includes additional manuscript materials from earlier drafts which demonstrate the conflicting imperatives that influenced Mill'schoice of exactly what to say about some of the most significant episodes and relationships in his life.

Much more interesting than I expected, and I'm much more interested in reading Mill's work than I was before I read this. Although he had some astonishing blind spots, he comes across as a humble, fascinating, radical man. ( )

Mill prefaces the book by saying that the majority of his life would be quite boring to hear about, and the only reason he's written an autobiography is to make a record of the unusual education he had. indeed, that is what i wanted to read about, and i read the first half of this with great attention. but then he gets beyond his education, and it is as boring as he said it would be. worth it? i guess.

This model of romantic & Victorian autobiography features many bonus insights. Throughout the book, Mill's own life & concerns are intimately tied with the struggle between the values of Enlightenment & those of Romanticism; with evolving notions of political & social engineering, then known as "political economy"; with the conscientious first-person account of a depression, together with an almost existential approach to its cure. Not to forget the dominant theme of this book: a detailed description & evaluation of the bizarre, slanted, yet singularly effective education of a very young JS Mill by his formidable father, James Mill.

Neat! System of logic stuff is boring. But the first half is pretty snappy.

Open any page of Mill, and you will find something very well-expressed. If I were teaching students to write good, serviceable, muscular, forthright English prose, I should give them Mill to read.

It seems proper that I should prefix to the following biographical sketch some mention of the reasons which have made me think it desirable that I should leave behind me such a memorial of so uneventful a life as mine.

For now I saw, or thought I saw, what I had always before received with incredulity -- that the habit of analysis has a tendency to wear away the feelings; as indeed it has, when no other mental habit is cultivated, and the analyzing spirit remains without its natural complements and correctives.
Of the truth of this I was convinced, but to know that a feeling would make me happy if I had it, did not give me the feeling.
Those only are happy (I thought) who have their minds fixed on some object other than their own happiness; on the happiness of others, on the improvement of mankind, even on some art or pursuit, followed not as a means, but as itself an ideal end.
