Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Politik - Politische Theorie und Ideengeschichte, Note: 1,3, Universität Augsburg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Freiheit des Individuums in der Gesellschaft ist oft Gegenstand der öffentlichen Diskussion. In den letzten Jahren kam es immer wieder zu Eingriffen der Politik in eben diese, was mit dem Streben nach Sicherheit, Wohlstand und Volksgesundheit gerechtfertigt wird; doch auch die Gesellschaft selbst übt Druck auf das Verhalten des Einzelnen aus. Staatliche wie gesellschaftliche Handlungsvorschriften stehen immer wieder in der Fokus von Diskussionen. In dieser Hausarbeit soll ein etabliertes Werk zum Thema der individuellen Freiheit vor diesem Hintergrund analysiert werden: John Stuart Mills “On Liberty” (deutsch: “Über die Freiheit”), erschienen im Jahre 1859, behandelt diese Thematik im Sinne des frühen Liberalismus. Ich möchte nun zunächst auf die beachtenswerte Biographie des Autors eingehen und im Anschluss eine möglichst prägnante Zusammenfassung seines Werkes “On Liberty” darstellen. Schließlich soll Mills Freiheitsbegriff auf seine Reichweite und Grenzen in unserer heutigen Gesellschaft geprüft und ein aktueller Bezug des Werkes auf die Gegenwart hergestellt werden.

On Liberty has become celebrated as the most powerful defence of the freedom of the individual, and is now widely regarded as the most important theoretical foundation for Liberalism as a political creed. The Subjection of Women is a powerful indictment of the political, social, and economic position of women. This edition, first published in 1989, brings together these two classic texts, plus Mill's posthumous Chapters on Socialism, his somewhat neglected examination of the strengths and weaknesses of various forms of socialism. The editor's substantial introduction places these three works in the context both of Mill's life and of nineteenth-century intellectual and political history. There is also a chronology of Mill's life, a bibliographical guide, and a biographical appendix of names cited in the texts.

Mill predicted that “[t]he Liberty is likely to survive longer than anything else that I have written … because the conjunction of [Harriet Taylor’s] mind with mine has rendered it a kind of philosophic text-book of a single truth, which the changes progressively taking place in modern society tend to bring out in ever greater relief.” Indeed, On Liberty is one of the most influential books ever written, and remains a foundational document for the understanding of vital political, philosophical and social issues. In addition to its many useful appendices, this new edition includes a chronology, bibliography, and a substantial introduction which outlines Mill’s life and works, and sets this central work of 1859 in the context of both his own intellectual development and of the play of ideas and political forces in Victorian society.

A prodigiously brilliant thinker who sharply challenged the beliefs of his age, the political and social radical John Stuart Mill was the most influential English-speaking philosopher of the nineteenth century. Regarded as one of the sacred texts of liberalism, his great work On Liberty argues lucidly that any democracy risks becoming a 'tyranny of opinion' in which minority views are suppressed if they do not conform with those of the majority. Written in the same period as On Liberty, shortly after the death of Mill's beloved wife and fellow-thinker Harriet, The Subjection of Women stresses the importance of equality for the sexes. Together, the works provide a fascinating testimony to the hopes and anxieties of mid-Victorian England, and offer a compelling consideration of what it truly means to be free.
