Jeremy Bentham

Jeremy Bentham's auto-icon is now housed in the Student Centre, where he can be preserved to museum standard. Best known as a spiritual founder of UCL and for developing the doctrine of utilitarianism, he insisted that his body be preserved after his death to advance medical science.

Please note the auto-icon is currently closed to the public.
