Educating Mill

Sunday 11 March 2007 21:30-22:15 (Radio 3)

An analysis of the psychohistory of the forging of a remarkable mind in Mill's own words and the thoughts of Mill scholars around the world.

John Stuart Mill laid the foundations for modern ideas about freedom - but his own remarkable education by his father is a story of compulsion and manipulation that still resonates today. Was Mill merely the product of a remarkable intellectual experiment? And could this 'thinking machine' ever break free?

Duration:
