Chapter one focuses on John Stuart Mill’s thirty-five-year career with the East India Company. It details how Mill’s views on cognitive individuation, a culture of merit that might nourish it and, ultimately, the production of truth developed in accord with a system of rank and apportionment according to intellect and merit that he experienced while employed by the company.
