The Monograph brings out an important and so far unexplored aspect of J.S. Mill's social political thinking by closely looking into Mill's well know work On Liberty. Mill's emphasis of self-regarding acts has so far only been given a by and large simplistic interpretation. The author has set before himself the philosophically interesting task of finding a deeper significance of Mill's distinction between self-regarding and other-regarding acts by pointing out the motive of creativity underlying the former. He argues that the creation of self, and creativity as a moral force in society, these two together, implicitly and basically concern Mill in Liberty.
