Both Sides of the Case

John Stuart Mill by G F Watts
John Stuart Mill

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them. But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion . . .”

— John Stuart Mill, “On Liberty”
