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 the essays in TRACTS ON POOR LAWS AND PAUPER MANAGEMENT between 1813 and 1821. Bentham’s object was simply to include the most remarkable illustrations of the practical segacity and his anticipations of the civilizing benefits of such alterations as he suggested, the benefits which may have then appeared as the wildest Utopianism.  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 Poor Laws by Jeremy Bentham, one of the greatest thinkers of modern economics and philosophy on the planet.
