SHS talk: Greg Claeys on JS Mill and 'family values' - cancelled
Socialist History Society talk - Thursday 20 June 2013
Gregory Claeys speaks on Family Values? Mill on Liberty Reconsidered. Greg Claeys is Professor of the History of Political Thought at Royal Holloway, specialising in late 18th and 19th century English radical thought, particularly Tom Paine and Robert Owen. He is the author of numerous studies, most recently Searching for Utopia: the History of an Idea (2011). He has also edited some fifty volumes of primary sources, chiefly in the history of utopianism and radicalism. His talk will focus on some issues addressed in his forthcoming book, Mill and Paternalism, in particular how Mill's thinking on socialism, marriage, the family and 'overpopulation' was influenced by his contacts with feminists like Harriet Taylor.
