John Stuart Mill & Jeremy Bentham / Two Comparable Views on Utilitarianism
[ send me this paper ]
John Stuart Mill was raised in the shadow of the friendship between his father, James Mill, historian and philosopher, and Jeremy Bentham, at times a man considered to be one of the leading intellects of the 19th century. It is not surprising, then, that elements of their views on utilitarianism and their writings hold fundamental similarities, while also demonstrating the extension from the earlier perspectives of Bentham to the latter writings and developed ideas and postulates determined by John Stuart Mill.

John Stuart Mills: Utilitarianism.
[ send me this paper ]
(5 pp) Utilitarianism is an ethical theory developed in the modern period by Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832) and John Stuart Mill (1806-73) to promote fairness in British legislation during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries when the interests of the upper classes tended to prevail and the sufferings of the lower classes were neglected. Utilitarianism is an ethical theory that calls for putting benevolence into action. Mill interprets the term utilitarianism as signifying any moral theory (the terms ethical and moral are used synonymously by Bentham and Mill, ) in which acts are judged on the basis of their utility. Mill further specifies that there is no one conception of what constitutes utility and there is no implication of a sect. The author expresses dissention with "The Ultimate Sanction of the Principle of Utility." Bibliography lists 3 sources.

Karl Marx and Alienation Compared to John Stuart Mill and Liberty
[ send me this paper ]
This 8 page report discusses Karl Marx’s attitudes regarding alienation and John Stuart Mill’s theory of liberty. Karl Marx’s primary dictum, reduced in the most simplistic of terms, was that all events are determined by economic forces. Marx was always well-aware that it was not the working class but the middle class that drove history along its ever-progressing path. That reality results in a fundamental sense of alienation. John Stuart Mill believes that it is “the business of ethics” to underscore or illustrate what any person’s actual duties are and in what way those duties define individual freedom.

John Stuart Mill's Utilitarianism / Equality And Impartiality In Chapter V
[ send me this paper ]
A 5 page paper discussing the ending paragraphs of the work. Though Mills says that happiness is measurable and therefore useful for determining the state of equality between individuals, he does not specify how that measurement should be made.

That Mills takes such care to explain inequalities indicates that utilitarianism does not in itself either imply or guarantee equality among all, but it is, according to Mills, the basis of morality in that it leads to justice and to right actions.
