Quarto. XI, , 257, pp. Original green cloth with gold lettering on spine. Colored endpapers. According to John M. Robertson, Mill's Three Essays on Religion-"Nature," "The Utility of Religion," and "Theism" (1859, 1875, in Dissertations and Discussions)-exhibit not only that Mill was not a Christian but that he had never been one. Equally important, Mill "cleared the air of the hell-fire and the God who prospered on fear. More than any other event," Berman maintains, Mill "shifted the onus of proof from the atheist to the believer." With Viscount Morley, he agrees that "probably no English writer has done so much as Mr. Mill to cut at the root of the theological spirit." What he believed in was a finite God, one who exists but is not as the traditionalists claim necessarily all-powerful, perfectly good, and entirely omniscient. Prof. Bain, his intimate friend and biographer, once said of Mill that "in everything characteristic of the creed of Christendom he was a thorough-going negationist. He admitted neither its truth nor its utility." Bain also wrote that Mill "absented himself during his whole life from religious services." Mill's important philosophical work is the System of Logic (1843), in which he treats philosophy comprehensively and from the viewpoint of an empiricist. In his Three Essays on Religion, Mill admittedly mellowed his agnosticism with a view of a finite and impersonal God. But, wrote Paul Edwards in Immortality, Mill remained agnostic concerning the subject of life after death, or immortality. Some rubbing on covers and along edges of binding. Inner margin of both endpapers taped, as well as inner margin of half-title page and first page. Previous owner's inscription on half-title page.
