Notes

First edition of Mill's chief philosophical work. "Mill tries to show how all mental activity can be explained by the ways in which the sensations obtained through sense receptors, such as ears, eyes and nose, associate with each other in an organized way, and form more complex emotions, ideas and capacities. It is largely an exercise in logical construction rather than a psychological account The result is what Mill intended to produce: a small set of general principles derived from an examination of the structure of the human mind, a set that we can then use to formulate practical measures for the improvement of human welfare" (Mander & Sell, 790-91).
