Utilitarianism is a classic work of ethical theory, arguably the most persuasive and comprehensible presentation of this widely influential position. While he didn't invent utilitarianism, John Stuart Mill offered its clearest expression and strongest defense, and he expanded the theory to account for the variety in quality that we find among pleasures and pains. The complete text of the 1871 edition is included, along with selections from Jeremy Bentham's An Introduction to the Principles of Morals and Legislation. Andrew Bailey's detailed introduction examines the context of Mill's writing and offers guidelines on how to read the text accurately and critically.

The complete text of the 1871 edition of Utilitarianism is presented here, with footnote annotations added to clarify unfamiliar references and terminology for the student reader. A detailed introduction by the editor is divided into brief digestible parts discussing the context of the text and offering guidelines on how to read it accurately and critically. This edition has its origin in the acclaimed Broadview Anthology of Social and Political Thought and adheres to the anthology's format and high standard of accuracy and accessibility.

New/Used: New
When does the fetus start to dream? What are its early dreams? What is the function of infant dreams? What is the impact of nightmares? How do dreams evolve during adolescence? Is the visual aspect dominant in dreams? How do children who are born blind dream? Gerard Bleandonu brings to these questions his experience as a psychotherapist specializing in children suffering from psychological difficulties. Using the case studies of several children he has followed, he explains the content and structuring function of dreams. The children's own drawings often serve to elaborate on their dreams and render them more explicit. The author makes use of recent findings in neuro-physiology which have improved our understanding of dream mechanisms. Today it is no longer possible to adhere to the Freudian thesis which states that dreams serve either to fulfill wishes or to safeguard sleep.

The tale of Heathcliff's and Cathy's ungovernable love and suffering, and the havoc that their passion wreaks on the families of the Earnshaws and the Lintons, shocked the book's first readers, with even Emily's sister Charlotte claiming Whether it is right or advisable to create beings like Heathcliff, I do not know. I scarcely think it is.
