December 2022: J.S. Mill “On the Liberty of Thought and Discussion"

Wednesday, December 14, 2022, 3:30-5:00 EST

Please join us for a one-day-only Virtual Reading Group to discuss J.S. Mill “On the Liberty of Thought and Discussion", with Sarah Skwire.

Mill's On Liberty provides readers with a ringing defense of free speech as a crucial component of a free society. This VRG will consider the effectiveness of Mill's argument on its own, and in the light of today's cultural context. Does Mill have the essentials right? Does the argument need updating or nuancing? 

 

Pre-registration is required. Participants can find the readings here to read in preparation for our discussion.
