  1. Philip Schofield (ed.) (2015). The Book of Fallacies. OUP Oxford.
    Jeremy Bentham identifies and criticizes around fifty fallacious arguments used by politicians to thwart measures of reform, and exposes the sinister interests that lead to their employment. This edition restores Bentham's original structure and previously-omitted sections, and remains as relevant to political debate today as it was in his time.

  3. Philip Schofield (2011). Jeremy Bentham and HLA Hart's 'Utilitarian Tradition in Jurisprudence'. Jurisprudence 1 (2):147-167.
    Hart identified a utilitarian tradition in jurisprudence, which he associated with Jeremy Bentham and John Austin. This tradition consisted in three doctrines: the separation of law and morals; the analysis of legal concepts; and the imperative theory of law. I argue, contrary to Hart, that Bentham did not adopt a 'positivist' conception of law whether understood in terms of the separation of legal theory and morality or in terms of the separation of law and morals. Misinterpreting Bentham's approach to the (...)

  7. Philip Schofield (2009). Utility and Democracy: The Political Thought of Jeremy Bentham. OUP Oxford.
    In this first full historical account of the political thought of Jeremy Bentham, Philip Schofield shows how Bentham's insights in the fields of logic and language led to the first defence of democracy from a utilitarian perspective, and to the creation of the philosophic radicals, dedicated to political, legal, ecclesiastical, and social reform.

  10. Philip Schofield (2004). Jeremy Bentham, the French Revolution and Political Radicalism. History of European Ideas 30 (4):381-401.
    An unresolved debate in Bentham scholarship concerns the question of the timing and circumstances which led to Bentham's ‘conversion’ to democracy, and thus to political radicalism. In the early stages of the French Revolution, Bentham composed material which appeared to justify equality of suffrage on utilitarian grounds, but there are differing interpretations concerning the extent and depth of Bentham's commitment to democracy at this time. The appearance of Rights, Representation, and Reform: Nonsense upon Stilts and other essays on the French (...)

  11. Philip Schofield (2003). Jeremy Bentham's 'Nonsense Upon Stilts'. Utilitas 15 (01):1-.
    Jeremy Bentham's , hitherto known as , has recently appeared in definitive form in The Collected Works of Jeremy Bentham. The essay contains what is arguably the most influential critique of natural rights, and by extension human rights, ever written. Bentham's fundamental argument was that natural rights lacked any ontological basis, except to the extent that they reflected the personal desires of those propagating them. Moreover, by purporting to have a basis in nature, the language of natural rights gave a (...)

    Jeremy Bentham reconoció que la arquitectura tenía una gran influencia en la conducta del gobierno. Recomendaba que la arquitectura de los edificios en los que los funcionarios llevaban a cabo sus tareas ­-fuesen cámaras de debate legislativo, despachos gubernamentales, tribunales o prisiones- debería asegurar que todos los actos estuvieran constantemente abiertos a la inspección pública, a menos que hubiera fuertes razones para el secreto. Al lograr la publicidad de los actos oficiales, Bentham esperaba fijar la responsabilidad por parte de los (...)

  16. Philip Schofield (1999). Political and Religious Radicalism in the Thought of Jeremy Bentham. History of Political Thought 20 (2):272-291.
    This paper challenges both the traditional view of L. Stephen and E. Albee that Bentham's attitude towards religion was irrelevant to his moral and political thought, and the revisionist critique of J.C.D. Clark and J.E. Crimmins that his religious radicalism was the prerequisite for his political radicalism. It also challenges the two further claims advanced by Crimmins: first, that Bentham was an atheist; and second, that he wished to eliminate religion from the mind. In contrast it is argued that Bentham's (...)

  17. Philip Schofield (1996). Bentham on the Identification of Interests. Utilitas 8 (02):223-.
    It has been commonly accepted that Bentham, in his theory of constitutional law, aimed to replace the natural opposition of interests which existed between rulers and subjects with an artificial identification or junction of interests. This was brought about by making it the self-interest of rulers to act in such a way as to promote the general interest. In other words, any sinister interest to which the ruler was exposed, that is any desire he might feel to sacrifice the general (...)

    The essays which Bentham collected together for publication in 1830 under the title of Official Aptitude Maximized; Expense Minimized, written at various times between 1810 and 1830, deal with the means of achieving efficient and economical government. In considering a wide range of themes in the fields of constitutional law, public finance, and legal reform, Bentham places the problem of official corruption at the centre of his analysis. He contrasts his own recommendations for good administration, which he had fully developed (...)
