This paper discusses how John Stuart Mill struggled with the same moral, philosophical, political, and social issues that have troubled previous theorists in many fields of study for thousands of years. His primary contributions to the debates about these issues were his books, 'Utilitarianism' and 'On Liberty', in which he formulated and defended principles which are still being debated today. His harm principle was a primary element of an attempt to provide a definitive moral framework for individuals and society, but it has implications that many people believe raises more questions than it resolves.
