Mill, Utilitarianism

by Christina Hendricks

Published January 31, 2018 in Education

Slides for an Introduction to Philosophy course at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC, Canada. These give an introduction to Mill's utilitarianism as well as to consequentialism generally. Then they discuss intellectual and sensual pleasures, the argument Mill gives for why the Greatest Happiness Principle should be how we evaluate actions morally, and whether it's acceptable to violate rules of justice in order to produce more happiness.
