This paper discusses the work 'On Liberty and Utilitarianism' of the nineteenth-century English philosopher John Stuart Mill, who was said to have sought to define the parameters of liberty, examined the conflicts between individual liberty and government authority, and proposed a moral system in which moral dilemmas could be resolved by determining the greater good and acting accordingly. The paper further discusses how since the publication of these books more than two-hundred years ago, philosophers have argued whether the seemingly contradictory ideas in these books regarding liberty and Utilitarianism are reconcilable.
