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.

The Essay on the Promulgation of Laws is almost sound like Rousseau or Kant. Jeremy Bentham argued that the English Law of his time was mostly unknown to the common people. This was due to the obscurity of statute law and that much of common law was actually embodied in judicial decisions only available to lawyers. In his view, the promulgation of the laws is as important as the greatest happiness principle.

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 promulgation of the laws by Jeremy Bentham, one of the greatest thinkers of modern economics and philosophy on the planet.
