Product Description

Product Description

Philosophy for busy people. Read a succinct account of the philosophy of J.S. Mill in just one hour.

John Stuart Mill is remembered today as the leading exponent of Utilitarianism, arguing that our aim in life must be the attainment of pleasure and the minimizing of pain for the majority of people. The principle that lies at the heart of Utilitarianism is ‘the greatest benefit of the greatest number’ – an idea that perhaps seems self-evident today but one that was seen as radical within Mill’s own time. This central idea has become the unspoken founding principle of our modern way of life in the free Western democracies.

Here is a concise, expert account of J.S. Mill’s life and philosophical ideas – entertainingly written and easy to understand. Also included are selections from J.S. Mill’s work, suggested further reading, and chronologies that place J.S. Mill in the context of the broader scheme of philosophy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction 18 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a student of health care law And ethics this is a good introduction into the Developement of Utilitarianism from both J S Mill. It goes further than the lectures afford him time, yet doesn't bog you down in complex theory, but gives plenty of suggestions for further reading.
