Autobiography of John Stuart MillDownloadable Audiobook - 2009 | Unabridged
Mill's autobiography deals primarily with the life of the mind-but a mind that ranks as one of the most remarkable and significant of the nineteenth century. The book memorably depicts the emergence of a brilliant child prodigy, the product of an extraordinary education that both hastened his development and brought him to the brink of suicide by the age of twenty-one. Illumined with equal clarity is the story of Mill's renewed commitment to life and of the further conflicts that marked his long evolution toward maturity as a major philosopher and social thinker. Superb in its dispassionate objectivity, the Autobiography stands as a work of enduring relevance and as a final testament to a rare and luminous intelligence.
