This is the Table
Of Contents (TOC) of this html-edition of Mill's Utilitarianism.
The paper text I
presuppose is H.B. Acton's 1972-edition of "Utilitarianism".
This paper edition I used for my notes, but I did not compare it
carefully with the html-version I use. The full reference is:
Mill: Utilitarianism, On Liberty and Considerations on
Representative Government Edited by H.B. Acton (ISBN 0 460 11482
This is in
Everyman's Library, with selections from additional texts by Mill, and
is a good buy if you are interested in Mill at all. (It seems also a
good edition, except for one glitch: 
to Chapter V.
The texts that follow have
many links, and come all with a group of usually four arrows at the
beginning and the end of each text, that look thus:
These have in general the following effect when clicked:
- previous file
- Table of Contents
Notes or Text associated with the file
Every file of
Mill's text links to a file with my notes, the links to which are
between square brackets as in "". In order to allow the reader to
read my notes independently, they all start with a quotation in blue of
the passage they annotate, and that generally ends with the link to the
note in Mill's text.
Mill's own notes are indicated by a "M" and are made superscript, like
passages I annotate are repeated in my Notes, it is possible to
read the Notes without reading the Text that is annotated. However,
each file of Notes has at its beginning a link to the Text it
annotates, and likewise that Text has at its beginning a link to my
Notes to it, and as explained each Note also has a link to the Text and
the place is is quoted from
download my edition of Mill's "Utilitarianism" and my notes should
realize that the links to and from the notes are retained only if they
are placed in directory-structures of the following form:
that includes Mill's textfiles and the TOC
"/Utilitarianism/Notes/" - that
includes my textfiles of notes
directory and its subdirectory are otherwise attached to a filesystem
on the computer you use is irrelevant, but the above is required for
having the many links work when reading off line.
Also, it may be
remarked that the reading of my Notes may be preferable for many
to the reading of Mill's text, because my Notes very likely contain all
or most of the best bits of Mill's text in quotation, while Mill's
text, both in the html I found and the paper version I use, is very
sparse with interlineation, while the text contains many long sentences
and arguments crammed in very long uninterlined paragraphs.
It should also be
mentioned that there two related texts concerned with the foundations
of morals on my site with my comments, namely Hume's Enquiry
concerning the Principles of Morals, and Edward's "The Logic of
Moral Discourse", that are also well worth reading.
have uploaded my Notes to "Utilitarianism"
on August 22, 2007, after having uploaded my html-edition of Mill's
text in December 2006. My Notes are a first version and need some links
and corrections, that will be made later, depending on my health.
set of files concerned with ethics on my site is Aristotle's Nicomachean
Ethics, in W.D. Ross's translation, my html-edition, and with my notes.
