This is a modern language version of the classic 1859 essay. Essentially, it translates the work into current English with the aim of improving its readability and understandability. The translation is substantive but retains literalness and original word order and grammar as far as possible. Mill’s primary concern in On Liberty is with the liberty of the individual. He is fully aware that personal freedom is only a part of freedom. People live in societies and their personal liberty depends on ¿ and contributes to ¿ economic and political institutional (etc.) freedom. In the course of the essay, Mill touches on many wider socio-cultural aspects of liberty. He does not examine them very systematically or in much depth. However, he is not setting out to write a comprehensive treatise on human liberty. Nor does On Liberty just attack state interference with freedom. Mill sets down as a basic principle that neither the state nor society has any business restricting the liberty of people except to prevent injury to others.
