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.

In A General View of a Complete Code of Laws, Jeremy Bentham enumerated a large number of rights. He believed that natural rights was "simple nonsense: natural and imprescriptible rights, rhetorical nonsense,—nonsense upon stilts." Bentham called legal rights are real and fundamental rights. All rights must be legal and specific. Many of his views against natural rights continue to be influential in contemporary political philosophy. The book clearly reflect principles defended throughout his work.

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 about the legal rights of people by Jeremy Bentham, one of the greatest thinkers of modern economics and philosophy on the planet.
