Volumes 7 and 8 comprise Mill s landmark philosophical work A System of Logic, Ratiocinative and Inductive, in which Mill explores the basic principles of inductive reasoning. In this work Mill presents the five basic modes of induction, which are now known as Mill s Methods: the method of agreement, the method of difference, the joint or double method of agreement, the method of residues, and that of concomitant variations. In contrast to Aristotle s syllogisms, which are based on deductive reasoning, Logic provides an alternate path to knowledge and constitutes an important contribution to the development of the scientific method.

Book Description:

In this two-volume work of 1843, John Stuart Mill (1806-73) establishes the principles of inductive reasoning and experimental method that inform his later works of political and social philosophy. Volume 2 includes Book VI, 'On the Logic of the Moral Sciences', an important early treatment of social science.

About the Author:

John Stuart Mill was an English philosopher, politician and economist most famous for his contributions to the theory of utilitarianism. The author of numerous influential political treatises, Mill s writings on liberty, freedom of speech, democracy and economics have helped to form the foundation of modern liberal thought. His 1859 work, On Liberty, is particularly noteworthy for helping to address the nature and limits of the power of the state over the individual. Mills has become one of the most influential figures in nineteenth-century philosophy, and his writings are still widely studied and analyzed by scholars. Mills died in 1873 at the age of 66.
