The ethical theory of John Stuart Mill (1806-1873) is most extensively articulated in his classical text Utilitarianism (1861). Its goal is to justify the utilitarian principle as the foundation of morals. This principle says actions are right in proportion as they tend to promote overall human happiness. This article primarily examines the central ideas of his text Utilitarianism, but the article's last two sections are devoted to Mill's views on the freedom of the will and the justification of punishment, which are found in System of Logic (1843) and Examination of Sir William Hamilton’s Philosophy (1865), respectively.

The difficulty is not avoided by having recourse to the popular theory of a natural faculty, a sense or instinct, informing us of right and wrong. There are few circumstances among those which make up the present condition of human knowledge, more unlike what might have been expected, or more significant of the backward state in which speculation on the most important subjects still lingers, than the little progress which has been made in the decision of the controversy respecting the criterion of right and wrong.

The text is preceded by a comprehensive introduction assessing Mill's philosophy and the alternatives to utilitarianism, and discussing some of the specific issues Mill raises in Utilitarianism. This volume also includes an analysis of the text, substantial endnotes, suggestions for further reading, and a full bibliography.

I had read "On Liberty" by Mill and thought it was brilliant. However, I had put off reading Utilitarianism because of the way I had heard people describe this particular philosophy. While reading this book, I realized that those people had no understanding of Utilitarianism. I would highly recommend this book. John Stuart Mill had an IQ of 190 and was trained from a very young age to take up the cause where Jeremy Bentham left off. I think my biggest takeaway from the book is that one must act with nobility (honor, goodness, decency integrity) when pursuing the Greatest Happiness principle that is Utilitarianism. In other words, taking from 1 person to give to 2 other people, although increasing overall happiness, does not qualify as Utilitarian act because it is no decent to take what does not belong to you.

Great introduction, notes, and bibliography. Yes, you could read Utilitarianism for free on the internet, but with these resources available, why would you?

Book was in good condition. Had to buy for a philosophy course.

Good historical background but tough to follow trains of thought. Not sure if JSM sees the concept of utilitarianism and happiness as the same thing
