Jeremy Bentham is one of the great British philosophers and is known for his influence on theories of politics and jurisprudence. This guidebook explores the main aspects of Bentham's philosophical system and its influence on ethics and philosophy of law. Bentham on Law and Morality provides an accesible and sympathetic introduction to Bentham's main ideas and links them to subsequent debates about the utility, law and morality. Examining his two central works Kelly assesses: the ideas and text of An Introduction to the Principles of Morals and Legislation and Of Laws in General Bentham's life and the background to his works the continuing importance of Betham's work to political theory, ethics and law.
