HASH(0xa61f2bb8) out of 5 stars Essential Mill April 13 2010
By Bill R. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Utilitarianism is Mill's most direct attempt to refine his inherited doctrine. Even more concise than On Liberty, this also essentially picks up where it left off, delving into the practical problem of how to deal with conflicting liberties. Mill retains the core utilitarian tenet that what brings the most happiness for the most people should be acted on - a very appealing doctrine in itself and put forth more palatably and persuasively than by the prior generation. However, utilitarianism's many critics will find little to convince them; however ideally attractive, many practical problems arise when issues such as relative happiness and harm turn up, as well as the thorny problem of how to enforce utilitarianism and punish transgressions. Mill makes some headway, covering nearly all conceivable ground in general principles but leaving much practical application unaddressed. It may be the most spirited utilitarianism defense ever but unfortunately is not complete, however admirable in many ways. That said, it is essential for anyone interested in Mill or utilitarianism.

HASH(0xa61f2fc0) out of 5 stars Worth the Read Nov. 12 2015
By Jessie Twigger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A nice (relatively) short yet interesting read. At approximately 100 pages this wasn't horribly time consuming to digest. While I think John Stuart Mill could have done without the long-winded defense of utilitarianism in comparison to other prevailing philosophical thought of the time I can see the necessity of starting his discussion this way. Besides the fact that I find utilitarianism to just be a written statement of general human feeling, his discussions on defining happiness, balancing happiness with cost, and personal vs. community happiness to be extremely interesting.
HASH(0xa61f2dc8) out of 5 stars Cheap, Effective April 1 2014
By Timothy Salmon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Much like John Stuart Mill might desire in an efficient world maximizing utility, I was able to enjoy the man's words with very little cost to me.
