Jeremy Bentham's Remains, and photo of Isaiah Berli

June 6 marks major life events of two eminent British philosophers, Jeremy Bentham’s death (1832) and Isaiah Berlin’s birth (1909).

Bentham was known as a “philosophical radical” and a major influence on the British utilitarian tradition. He authored numerous books, including Defence of Usury (1787) and An Introduction to the Principles of Morals and Legislation (1789).

Berlin was best known for several dozen brilliant essays, including the famous, much-quoted “Two Concepts of Liberty.”
