John Stuart Mill’s Ideas on Free Speech, Illustrated
Heterodox Academy has produced and published two editions of the illustrated book, All Minus One, based on John Stuart Mill’s famous essay, On Liberty. Both editions bring Mill’s work to life by making it accessible and relevant to modern readers.
All Minus One starts with an introduction by the book’s editors, Richard Reeves and Jonathan Haidt, who draw the connection between Mill, his time, and his ideas, and the issues facing our world today. By removing dated references and distilling and modernizing the original work, the editors have created a lively, readable version that is more accessible than ever before. Key insights are highlighted by the original illustrations of artist David Cicirelli that amplify the power of Mill’s metaphors.
Over a century and a half since John Stuart Mill made the liberal democratic case for free speech and viewpoint diversity in On Liberty, the issues remain more fraught than ever. His arguments’ enduring value are front and center in the second edition of All Minus One. The second edition, with enhanced features for classroom use, is available for purchase below.
All Minus One is ideal for use in college courses, advanced high school classes, or in any organization in which people would benefit from productive, constructive disagreement.
