All Minus One

Richard V. Reeves, Jonathan Haidt, Dave Cicirelli

John Stuart Mill’s Ideas on Free Speech, Illustrated

Heterodox Academy has produced and published a new illustrated book, All Minus One, based on John Stuart Mill’s famous essay, On Liberty. This special edition brings 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. The book draws from the second chapter of Mill’s work, where he makes some of the strongest cases for the importance of viewpoint diversity and free speech. 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 16 original illustrations by artist David Cicirelli that amplify the power of Mill’s metaphors. 

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.
