Quinn, Malcolm (2017) 'Jeremy Bentham on Middle-Class Taste' Bentham Seminars Programme 2017 UCL. In: Bentham Seminars Programme 2017 UCL, 15 March 2017, 22 Gordon Square, University College London, WC1H 0AG.

Type of Research: Conference, Symposium or Workshop Item
Creators: Quinn, Malcolm
Description:

This was a talk delivered as part of the annual 'Bentham Seminars Programme' at UCL. This talk was based on an article ‘Jeremy Bentham on Liberty of Taste’ in History of European Ideas (2016). In the talk I argued that that, firstly, Bentham gives us a new description of taste by including it within a discourse on sexuality, secondly that, under this new description, taste takes its meaning from a social model of utility and finally that the manner in which Bentham deals with taste in the essays on sexuality placed him in direct conflict with middle-class taste as it had developed over the previous century, and as it was to develop further in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
