Educating Mill

An analysis of the psychohistory of the forging of a remarkable mind in Mill's own words and the thoughts of Mill scholars around the world.

John Stuart Mill laid the foundations for modern ideas about freedom - but his own remarkable education by his father is a story of compulsion and manipulation that still resonates today.

Was Mill merely the product of a remarkable intellectual experiment? And could this 'thinking machine' ever break free?

JS Mill....Jamie Glover

James Mill....John Dougall

Other readings by Ioan Meredith.
