The new authoritative edition of The Collected Works of Jeremy Bentham is being prepared by the Bentham Project, in the Faculty of Laws, University College London. Despite Benthams historical importance and continuing philosophical relevance, scholars have hitherto had to rely on an inadequate edition of his writings published in 1843. The new edition is based on printed texts published by Bentham himself during his lifetime, and on his unpublished papers deposited in UCL Library and the British Library. The volumes are fully annotated, and contain an editorial introduction and detailed indexes. The Bentham Project also hosts Transcribe Bentham, the award-winning scholarly crowdsourcing initiative.
Oxford University Press is proud to be associated with The Bentham Project who continue to edit Bentham's vast collection of writing.
"Dr Schofield's editorial work is exemplary, and greatly assists the reader. The editor's labours and scholarship are much to our profit. These writings add significantly to our knowledge of Bentham." - Peter Nicholson, Political Studies
"This splendidly edited volume should facilitate more work in Bentham scholarship, religious studies and intellectual history. This [volume] is another testimony of the high standards of the Bentham Project's editorial work." - Emmanuelle de Champs (Paris VIII), History, (Review of Church-of-Englandism)
"As expected in a definitive Oxford University Press edition of the work of an important intellectual, this volume of RChurch-of-Englandism displays a high standard of scholarship." - Anthony Page (Tasmania), Journal of Religious History (Review of Church-of-Englandism)
"This volume is indeed an editorial performance, but it is also a seminal work in terms of content. This volume is a celebration, but not only for Bentham scholars: every legal philosopher of legal theorist should be interested-perhaps fascinated-by such a reading." - Malik Bozzo Rey (Lille Catholic University), Int. J. Semiot. Law (Review of Of the Limits of the Penal Branch of Jurisprudence)
"...the uniform excellence of the editorial achievement. The volume's editor, Michael Quinn, is a model of learning, insight and scholarly rigor." - David Lieberman (University of California at Berkeley), H-Albion. (Review of Poor Laws Volume II.)
