About the book:

Utilitarianism, by British philosopher John Stuart Mill, is one of his most influential works and is a philosophical defense of utilitarian ethical theory. John Stuart Mill, (1806-1873), worked for the East India Co. helped run Colonial India from England. In Utilitarianism, Mill develops a theory of morality and argues against the idea of intuitive morality. Utilitarianism is a philosophical defense 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. Recommended reading for anyone interested in philosophy, political science, and history.
