This book explores various connections of John Stuart Mill’s thought to ancient Greek philosophy primarily in relation to his conception of happiness. It argues that a better understanding of Mill’s background in ancient Greek thought and his reading(s) of Plato’s dialogues leads to innovative interpretations of his moral and political thought.
