This chapter examines John Stuart Mill's neglect of the Bengali reformer, Rammohun Roy. Buckingham also used the famous Rammohun Roy as evidence of the intellectual progress made possible by a free press in India, warning of the threat to that progress by the new press regulations. The German intellectual influences to which Thomas Carlyle exposed Mill included a version of Einfühlung. The United States and elsewhere, satyagraha is testament to the flow and counterflow of ideas engendered by modern imperialism. J. S. Mill was situated like few other major Western intellectuals to participate in cultural and intellectual exchange with the non-Western world. Bernard Cohn saw the British colonising Indian forms of knowledge and inventing ones of their own useful for the imperial project. Exploring what transpired with the potential for intellectual influence across cultural borders during the course of Mill's intellectual career is an unfinished project.
