Bentham: A Guide for the Perplexed presents a clear account of his life and thought, and highlights his relevance to contemporary debates in philosophy, politics, and law. Key concepts and themes, including Bentham's theory of logic and language, his utilitarianism, his legal theory, his panopticon prison, and his democratic politics--together with his views on religion, sex, and torture--are lucidly explored. The book also contains an illuminating discussion of the nature of the text from the perspective of an experienced textual editor.
