was established by J. Mill, an ardent supporter of Bentham, as the journal of the ‘philosophical radicals’, in opposition to the Edinburgh Review and the Quarterly Review. Byron, Coleridge, Tennyson, and Carlyle were among the literary figures it supported. The journal survived several changes of name and ownership, and under the editorship of John Chapman from 1851 published Froude, Pattison, Pater, George Eliot, and others. In this century it dropped its literary interests.
