Mill and Religion

Contemporary Responses to Three Essays on Religion

Sell, Alan P.F., editor

The publication of Mill’s Three Essays elicited a remarkable diversity of responses. Anonymous authors in the prominent literary and theological reviews of the day joined philosophers, from empiricists to idealists, and theologians, from Anglicans to Unitarians. Sell here gathers and introduces a representative selection of the reviews, essays, and extracts that met this work. The writers, though diverse, are united in one view – that what Mill had written mattered – and their debate continued for many years.
