John Stuart Mill (20 May 1806 – 8 May 1873) was an English philosopher, political economist and civil servant. One of the most influential thinkers in the history of liberalism, he contributed widely to social theory, political theory and political economy. Mill was a proponent of utilitarianism, and contributed significantly to the theory of the scientific method. A member of the Liberal Party, he was also the first Member of Parliament to call for women's suffrage.

John Stuart Mill was born on Rodney Street in the Pentonville area of London, the eldest son of the Scottish philosopher, historian and economist James Mill, and Harriet Burrow. In 1851, Mill married Harriet Taylor (née Hardy; London, 8 October 1807 – Avignon, 3 November 1858). Their daughter was Helen Taylor, noted feminist. Mill died in 1873 of erysipelas in Avignon, France, where he was buried alongside his wife.
