On Liberty : Examples of Applications of the Liberty Principle Richard Arneson, instructor. PHILOSOPHY 13 Fall, 2007 Listed below are some examples that Mil introduces to help interpret his liberty principle and to illustrate its application. Mill holds that in some of these cases the restriction of liberty that is proposed is permissible according to the liberty principle. In other cases, the proposed restriction violates the liberty principle as Mill understands it. (Mill first formulates the "liberty principle" on p. 9.) The question arises whether or not it is possible to develop an interpretation of the liberty principle according to which Mill's treatment of these various examples can be shown to be consistent and plausible. Can the principle do the job that Mill sets for it? 1. Avoiding the company of a person we believe to be grossly imprudent (when it is accepted that her imprudent conduct does not harm others) (p. 75).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
