Review of Bentham’s The Book of Fallacies

A few months ago I wrote a review of the new edition of Jeremy Bentham’s The Book of Fallacies, edited by Philip Schofield and published by OUP.

I was intending to write a more in-depth post about this very intriguing book, specifically whether it has any modern-day relevance to political debate (Fallacies is essentially a manual for how to get parliamentary reforms through the reactionary British establishment of the early nineteenth century), but alas time has slipped away from me over the Christmas holidays.

Nevertheless, you can read the full review online. It will eventually appear in the History of European Ideas journal.
