Episode 183: Mill on Liberty (Part Two)

The Partially Examined Life Philosophy Podcast

Continuing on John Stuart Mill's On Liberty. We discuss "partial truths," whether "truth will out," whether we can discard some "experiments in living" as established failures, how Mill compares to Nietzsche, education, "barbarians," and more.
