Lawrence Lessig - "a brilliant agile mind - absolutely extraordinarily prolific writer and speaker and above all an advocate for all the right things"
"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of exclusive property, it is the action of a thinking power called an idea ... no one possesses the less of it because every other possesses the whole of it ... as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening mine" -- Thomas Jefferson

Utilitarianism - achieving the greatest good for the greatest number. Well-known Western philosopher John Stuart Mill proposes the concept of utilitarianism as a moral standard by which to judge actions.
In Utopia (1516) Thomas More concocts a place, an island, with what he considers to be desirable religious, social and political practices - a place very unlike where he actually lived. It is a place "like Plato's Republic, only better". Utopia is often discussed for its political ideas and is seen as the seed for communist political thought, it is a great piece of work that continues to generate political discussion. Thought provoking through the ages.
A tragicomedy that recounts the conflict between Catherine, a dull but sweet daughter, and her brilliant domineering father as Catherine slowly develops maturity and independence. "Everybody likes Washington Square, even the denigrators of Henry James," wrote critic Donald Hall.
The story follows the development of Molly Gibson and her new stepsister Cynthia into womanhood within the gossiping and watchful society of Hollingford. It offers an ironic critique of mid-Victorian society disguised as a nostalgic evocation of village life.
