John Stuart Mill (1806-1873), English philosopher and economist, he advocated utilitarianism and fought for women's suffrage. Mill was brought up and educated by his father, who kept him away from his peers. This he did so his son could continue his work on utilitarianism after his death. Mill was an exceptional student, by the age of three he knew the Greek alphabet and by eight had read the works of Xenophon and Isocrates. In 1819, at the age of thirteen, he was introduced to political economy, studying Adam Smith and Ricardo. Mill was later to complete their economic views of "factors of production". His most famous work, published in 1859 is On Liberty.
