John Stuart Mill's political self-identifications

Abstract [en]

Mill's choice of political self-identifications was thoughtful and enduring. He described himself as a radical and an advanced liberal but, perhaps surprisingly, avoided the designation of a liberal simpliciter. He also called himself a democrat, but often added reservations that referred to his dissension from some common views among contemporary democrats. Beginning in 1848 he regarded himself as a socialist, but he was careful to distinguish his views from those of some others who called themselves socialists. A study of how he described his own political views can contribute to our understanding of how he related to the political ideologies and movements of his own time.
