520    The prevailing view of the English reformer Jeremy Bentham
       (1748-1832) is that he was essentially a moral philosopher
       and jurist with a penchant for indulging in occasional 
       extravagant and rather mysterious practical projects such 
       as the Panopticon. This book argues that such a view 
       represents a misunderstanding based to a considerable 
       extent on the one-sided view of Bentham presented by his 
       greatest promoter, Etienne Dumont (1759-1829). Dumont's 
       abstracts of Bentham manuscripts publishedin French in 
       1802 had a huge influence in the English-speaking world 
       through the translation of partof them under the title 
       Theory of Legislation - the classic presentation of 
       Benthamism. Dumont's ownparticular agenda, forged in his 
       traumatic experience of the French Revolution, prevented 
       him however from taking an interest in the ₁other₂ Bentham
       presented here for the first time: the entrepreneurial 
       figure who sought in Panopticon to embody, not the 
       Orwellian nightmare of state intrusiveness so often 
       assumed, but the cherished modern values of transparency, 
       accountability and economyin public institutions
