Introduction

The British philosopher, MP, political theorist and economist John Stuart Mill (1806-1873) was one of the most influential classical liberal thinkers of the nineteenth century. The lengthy An Examination of Sir William Hamiltonís Philosophy, from which this chapter is extracted, is devoted to an attack on the psychological and metaphysical ideas of Scottish philosopher William Hamilton, who was partly influenced by Kant. In this passage Mill is bent on criticising the idea that there could be unconscious states of mind.
