Does Mill Still Matter? "All Minus One" - Second Edition Launch
Over a century and a half since John Stuart Mill made the liberal democratic case for free speech and viewpoint diversity in "On Liberty," the issues remain more fraught than ever. His arguments’ enduring value will be front and center in the upcoming second edition of "All Minus One." Drawing from the second chapter of "On Liberty," "All Minus One" makes the classic text accessible and relevant to modern readers and features original illustrations of Mill’s metaphors.

In honor of the second edition release, Heterodox Academy (HxA) and The Sphere Education Initiative, a project of the Cato Institute, are proud to present a panel conversation with the book’s editors, Jonathan Haidt and Richard Reeves, and illustrator, Dave Cicirelli. They will speak to their experiences creating this new edition, discuss Mill’s relevance on the individual, relational, institutional, and national levels, and explore Mill’s arguments in today’s social media world. The conversation is a great opportunity for educators looking to incorporate Mill’s work in their classrooms.

This virtual event is open to the public. Questions? Email events@heterodoxacademy.org
