John Stuart MILL (1806 - 1873)
John Stuart Mill's book Utilitarianism is one of the most influential and widely-read philosophical defenses of utilitarianism in ethics. The essay first appeared as a series of three articles published in Fraser's Magazine in 1861; the articles were collected and reprinted as a single book in 1863. It went through four editions during Mill's lifetime with minor additions and revisions.
Although Mill includes discussions of utilitarian ethical principles in other works such as On Liberty and The Subjection of Women, Utilitarianism contains Mill's only major discussion of the fundamental grounds for utilitarian ethical theory.

Book Description Dover Publications Inc., United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. How do we decide what is good and what is bad ? According to the ethical theory of Utilitarianism, to do good is to always perform that act, of those available, that will bring the most happiness or the least unhappiness. By far the most widely read introduction to this theory, John Stuart Mill s Utilitarianism is one of the most important and controversial works of moral philosophy ever written. In this major contribution to ethical history, Mill s treatise defends the view that all human action should produce the greatest happiness overall, and that happiness itself is made up of higher pleasures, such as the cultural, intellectual, and spiritual, and lower pleasures, such as the physical. The relationship of utilitarian theory to other ethical systems, and powerful arguments in its favor -- especially when concerning justice -- are brilliantly discussed. How do we weigh options to maximize happiness for self and for those around us? From common-day dilemmas to large-scale social decisions, this exposition remains as relevant today as it was to intellectual and moral dilemmas of the nineteenth century.
