    Whether Mill’s contributions to causal logic ever actually affected anyone’s investigation of nature in a positive or negative way is hard to say. Nevertheless, some of his thoughts on the subject were misleading, and the fact should be made public. This is all very disappointing, considering J. S. Mill’s status in British intellectual.

Mill's liberty principle states that: “the only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over a member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others. His own good, either physical or moral, is not a sufficient warrant.”. The following passage from “Crisis in my Mental History. One Stage Onward” — the fifth chapter of Mill's Autobiography — stands as one of the classic Victorian texts that narrate the abandonment of childhood belief. Unlike what John Ruskin described in Fors and Præterita as his own “unconversion,” Mill's took the form of loss of faith in a secular political philosophy.

    John Stuart Mills Ethical Theory Of Utilitarianism Philosophy Essay. words (4 pages) Essay in Philosophy.

It was because of this that J. S. Mill saw a need for re-defining the basic principle of Utilitarian ethics in his book Utilitarianism.
