By Jeremy Bentham,Alexander Taylor Milne

The first 5 volumes of the Correspondence of Jeremy Bentham comprise over 1,300 letters written
both to and from Bentham over a 50-year interval, starting in 1752 (aged 3) with
his earliest surviving letter to his grandmother, and finishing in 1797 with
correspondence referring to his makes an attempt to establish a countrywide scheme for the
provision of negative aid. opposed to the historical past of the debates at the American
Revolution of 1776 and the French Revolution of 1789, to which he made
significant contributions, Bentham labored first on generating a whole penal
code, which concerned him in specified explorations of basic felony ideas,
and then on his panopticon felony scheme. regardless of constructing a number of original
and ground-breaking rules, contained in a mass of manuscripts, he published
little in the course of those years, and remained, on the shut of this era, a
relatively vague person. however, those volumes demonstrate how the
foundations have been laid for the amazing upward thrust of Benthamite utilitarianism in
the early 19th century.

In 1789 Bentham released An creation to the rules of Morals and Legislation, which
remains his most renowned paintings, yet which had little influence on the time, followed
in 1791 through The Panopticon: or, The
, within which he proposed the construction of a circular
penitentiary apartment. Bentham’s correspondence unfolds opposed to the backdrop of
the more and more violent French Revolution, and exhibits his preliminary sympathy for
France becoming hostility. On a private point, in 1791 his brother Samuel
returned from Russia, and in 1792 he inherited his father’s residence in Queen’s
Square position, Westminster including an important estate portfolio.
