    Irony in Adam Smith’s Critical Global History.Jennifer Pitts - 2017 - Political Theory 45 (2):141-163.
    This essay argues that attention to Adam Smith’s ironic framing of his historical narratives in the Wealth of Nations shows his critique of modern commercial society to have been more radical than is generally recognized. These narratives traced the pathologies of European development and the complex chains of causation that linked Smith’s readers—with often destructive and even catastrophic results—to other human beings distant from themselves. While Smith gave reasons to doubt that sympathy for distant others could bring about reform, I (...)

    Legislator Of The World?: A Rereading of Bentham on Colonies.Jennifer Pitts - 2003 - Philosophy Today 31 (2):200-234.
    It has become almost commonplace to claim that utilitarianism was, from its inception, an imperialist theory. Many writers, from Bentham’s own followers to recent scholars, have suggested that from Bentham onward, utilitarians reveled in the opportunity that they believed despotic power provided for the establishment of perfectly rational laws and institutions. A closer look at Bentham’s own views on empire, however, reveals a sharp break between his position on European colonies and that of followers such as James and John Stuart (...)

    Liberalism and Empire in a Nineteenth-Century Algerian Mirror.Jennifer Pitts - 2009 - Modern Intellectual History 6 (2):287-313.
    Le Miroir , published in Paris in 1833 by Hamdan ben Othman Khodja , was the first Algerian contribution to French public deliberation about France's emerging empire in North Africa. A work of a self-consciously liberal cosmopolitan, and modernizing, perspective, the Miroir was almost alone in French debates in making a principled argument for a complete French withdrawal from Algeria—what Khodja called a “liberal emancipation” of the country. The Miroir argued for an independent Algeria that might take its place in (...)

  7. Utilitarianism and Empire.David Theo Goldberg, H. S. Jones, Javed Majeed, J. Joseph Miller, Martha Nussbaum, Jennifer Pitts, Frederick Rosen & David Weinstein - 2005 - Lexington Books.
    The classical utilitarian legacy of Jeremy Bentham, J. S. Mill, James Mill, and Henry Sidgwick has often been charged with both theoretical and practical complicity in the growth of British imperialism and the emerging racialist discourse of the nineteenth century. But there has been little scholarly work devoted to bringing together the conflicting interpretive perspectives on this legacy and its complex evolution with respect to orientalism and imperialism. This volume, with contributions by leading scholars in the field, represents the first (...)

The essays explore the ways in which European colonial projects structured and shaped much of modern political theory, how concepts from political philosophy affected and were realized in colonial and imperial practice, and how we can understand the intellectual and social world left behind by a (...)
