Isaiah Berlin

Oxford University Press

This lecture explored the tension between liberty and one view of knowledge. Berlin presented Mill not only as an exponent of determinism and an associated consequentialism, but also as someone who came to recognize that this doctrine did not fit the facts of experience, and who emphasized, especially, free choice and the importance of negative liberty in society.

Keywords:   Isaiah Berlin, consequentialism, determinism, free choice, John Stuart Mill, negative liberty
