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.

Jeremy Bentham published his Plan of Parliamentary Reform in 1817. He argued in the writings limiting the interests of those with power and helping those without power. He proposed in the book elimination of royal patronage, annual elections by secret ballot, the election of intellectually qualified and independent members of parliament, adaption of fines to ensure regular attendance, and the full transparency of parliamentary debates. Without the reforms, he believed Britain risked revolution.

Jeremy Bentham’s work produced great influence on utilitarianism, philosophy, jurist, and economics. His view became widely recognised as the foremost philosophical voice of political radicalism and 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 political reform and legal systems by Jeremy Bentham, one of the greatest thinkers of modern economics and philosophy on the planet.
