Synopsis

J.S. Mill in 90 Minutes by Paul Strathern

In J.S. Mill in 90 Minutes, Paul Strathern offers a concise, expert account of Mill's life and ideas, and explains their influence on man's struggle to understand his existence in the world. The book also includes selections from Mill's work; a brief list of suggested reading for those who wish to push further; and chronologies that place Mill within his own age and in the broader scheme of philosophy.

Reviews

A godsend in this era of the short attention span. -- Daryl Royster Alexander The New York Times Witty, illuminating, and blessedly concise. -- Jim Holt The Wall Street Journal Well-written, clear and informed, they have a breezy wit about them... I find them hard to stop reading. -- Richard Bernstein The New York Times Witty and dramatic... I cannot think of a better way to introduce oneself and one's friends to Western civilization. -- Katherine A. Powers The Boston Globe
