Jeremy Bentham was a British philosopher, jurist, social reformer and the founder of modern utilitarianism. He is in the row with the greatest thinkers Adam Smith, John Stuart Mill, John Keynes, John Locke, and Alfred Marshall.  Their thoughts had strong influence on building the foundation of the United States and its endeavor of open society.

Jeremy Bentham invented the axiom of the greatest happiness of the greatest number. His writings emphasised the pursuit of happiness and freedom and became popular in the new republics of America and the other counties.

ANARCHICAL FALLACIES is one of the most important works by Jeremy Bentham with great relevance to modern political debate. Disagreeing with the first article of the Declaration which states that all men are born free, Bentham argued that all men were born in subjection. The subjection was perceived by him as the subjection of a helpless child to his more mature parents. He also insisted that the conclusion which can be done of this statement is that “the apprentice can be equal in rights to his master”.

Jeremy Bentham also argued in the book that origin of the governments was not a contract but habit and believed that the contract came from the government and not vice versa.

He finally argued in the book argues that rights such as liberty, property, security and resistance to oppression must have some bounds. These bounds should be written in laws.

Jeremy Bentham’s work produced great influence on utilitarianism, philosophy, jurist, and economics. His influence has been felt in nearly every field of the humanities and social sciences.

This book is one of the most important ones about the deepest thoughts of equal rights of all men and women by Jeremy Bentham, one of the greatest thinkers of modern economics and philosophy on the planet.
