Box 157 contains writings relating to Bentham's plans for a Panopticon prison to be built in London. The Panopticon was Bentham's idea for a new kind of prison where a system of surveillance would encourage the prisoners to reform their behaviour. Despite some support for his plan, Bentham's prison was ultimately never built. This was a crushing disappointment to Bentham and had a a crucial impact on his intellectual development. He felt that vested interests in the government and monarchy were deliberately blocking prison reform and came to believe that more radical political change was necessary in Britain.
