This book discusses a less familiar but very important aspect of his political thought: his theory of how government .

It thus focuses on his programme for he executive and judicial branches of government rather than for the legislature and the electorate. Charvet considers the ideas of the freedom and equality of men in the many forms they have taken and shows that there is a radical incoherence underlying them which consists in the failure to integrate in a coherent way the particular and the moral or communal dimensions of individual life.

Liberty, equality, fraternity Cambridge studies in the history and theory of politics.

James Fitzjames Stephen’s Liberty, Equality, Fraternity figured prominently in the mid- to late nineteenth century Victorian debates on two concepts at the heart of politics in the modern world-liberty and equality. Understanding himself to be a defender of an older English Liberalism that he thought to be under assault and weakening at an ever-quickening pace, Stephen attempted in Liberty, Equality, Fraternity to offer a corrective to what he believed were the mistaken views of liberty, equality, and fraternity that were leading the charge.

Liberty, Equality, Fraternity book . Impugning John Stuart Mill’s famous treatise, On Liberty, Stephen criticized Mill for turning abstract doctrines of the French Revolution into the creed of a religion. James Fitzjames Stephen was a man of a type instantly recognizable and now wholly disappeared, the Englishman confident in English superiority.

James Fitzjames Stephen was a man of a type instantly recognizable and now wholly disappeared, the Englishman .

James Fitzjames Stephen was a man of a type instantly recognizable and now wholly disappeared, the Englishman confident in English superiority. However, if a thought has real value, it will persist in the face of social disapprobation, and once triumphant, it will be far more strongly rooted than if it was simply adopted as sweeter.

R. J. White's edition, which was originally published in 1967, made Fitzjames Stephen's classic available for the first time since 1914. The editor made use of the 1874 second edition which included Stephen's notes in reply to his original critics. Stephen's work is written as a systematic denunciation of John Stuart Mill's political thought. It is thus of great importance in the history of Utilitarianism, and also as the most forthright and systematic of the Victorian attacks on democracy. Stephen's work is also important for its repudiation of the progressive attitudes to religion and morality characteristic of the Comptist philosophy which had attracted Mill. Stephen's aim was to show that 'no room is left for the order of ideas hinted at by the phrase 'Liberty, Equality, Fraternity''. He argues his case with legal precision and considerable rhetorical powers.

This book is absolutely fantastic. I do not say this because I agree with everything the author says. Many of his opinions are outdated and deserve to be outdated. But many of his opinions and the arguments he deploys in support of those opinions are as timely now as ever. For example, if you have taken an introductory course in political philosophy and felt that the professor's view of the subject was a little one-sided and overly modern then read this book. Here you'll find some trenchant criticisms of democracy and even freedom (freedom defined in a certain way) that you just won't have heard your professor mention. That is not to say that democracy and freedom are bad; I enjoy democracy and freedom. But after reading this book you'll feel like you understand the imperfections of our current political arrangements and why these arrangements still leave plenty of political problems unsolved. I could go on and on about the details of this book and why it is so enjoyable, but I'll simply advise you to read it for yourself. You won't agree with it completely, that I guarantee, but you'll be a little bit wiser.

Very interesting book. Im sure there are far better books that really address the issue in the contemporary light, but this is a fantastic book to read if you want a perspective of the debate regarding these issues in the time of John Stuart Mill (this a book directly addressing Mill's books).
