    The Correspondence of Jeremy...

    The first five volumes of the Correspondence of Jeremy Bentham contain over 1,300 letters written both to and from Bentham over a 50-year period, beginning in 1752 (aged three) with his earliest surviving letter to his grandmother, and ending in 1797 with correspondence concerning his attempts to set up a national scheme for the provision of poor relief. Against the background of the debates on the American Revolution of 1776 and the French Revolution of 1789, to which he made significant contributions, Bentham worked first on producing a complete penal code, which involved him in detailed explorations of fundamental legal ideas, and then on his panopticon prison scheme. Despite developing a host of original and ground-breaking ideas, contained in a mass of manuscripts, he published little during these years, and remained, at the close of this period, a relatively obscure individual. Nevertheless, these volumes reveal how the foundations were laid for the remarkable rise of Benthamite utilitarianism in the early nineteenth century. 
     
    Bentham’s life in the mid-1790s was dominated by the panopticon, both as a prison and as a network of workhouses for the indigent. The letters in this volume document in excruciating detail Bentham’s attempt to build a panopticon prison in London, and the opposition he faced from local aristocratic landowners. His brother Samuel was appointed as Inspector-General of Naval Works and in September 1796 married Mary Sophia Fordyce. 
    Praise for the Correspondence of Jeremy Bentham, volumes 1-5 
    ‘These volumes provide significant additions to our understanding of Bentham’s work in the first half of his life up to 1797. The insights they offer into Bentham’s activities, ideas and method cast light on his philosophical and political positions in a seminal period in British and European history.’British Journal for the History of Philosophy

Nevertheless, these volumes reveal how the foundations were laid for the remarkable rise of Benthamite utilitarianism in the early nineteenth century. 
    Bentham’s correspondence reveals that in the late 1770s he
    was working intensively on developing a code of penal law, but also expanding
    his acquaintance and, to a moderate degree, enhancing his reputation as a legal
    thinker. A significant family event took place in 1779 when his brother Samuel
    went to Russia in order to make his fortune.

    The first five volumes of the Correspondence of Jeremy Bentham contain over 1,300 letters written
    both to and from Bentham over a 50-year period, beginning in 1752 (aged three) with
    his earliest surviving letter to his grandmother, and ending in 1797 with
    correspondence concerning his attempts to set up a national scheme for the
    provision of poor relief. Against the background of the debates on the American
    Revolution of 1776 and the French Revolution of 1789, to which he made
    significant contributions, Bentham worked first on producing a complete penal
    code, which involved him in detailed explorations of fundamental legal ideas,
    and then on his panopticon prison scheme. Despite developing a host of original
    and ground-breaking ideas, contained in a mass of manuscripts, he published
    little during these years, and remained, at the close of this period, a
    relatively obscure individual. Nevertheless, these volumes reveal how the
    foundations were laid for the remarkable rise of Benthamite utilitarianism in
    the early nineteenth century. 
    In 1789 Bentham published An Introduction to the Principles of Morals and Legislation, which
    remains his most famous work, but which had little impact at the time, followed
    in 1791 by The Panopticon: or, The
    Inspection-House, in which he proposed the building of a circular
    penitentiary house. Bentham’s correspondence unfolds against the backdrop of
    the increasingly violent French Revolution, and shows his initial sympathy for
    France turning into hostility. On a personal level, in 1791 his brother Samuel
    returned from Russia, and in 1792 he inherited his father’s house in Queen’s
    Square Place, Westminster together with a significant property portfolio.
