Summary

Mill's Utilitarianism is one of the most important, controversial, and suggestive works of moral philosophy ever written. Mill defends the view that all human action should produce the greatest happiness overall, and that happiness itself is to be understood as consisting in "higher" and"lower" pleasures. This volume uses the 1871 edition of the text, the last to be published in Mill's lifetime.
