Project #121904 - Four-page Essay (Ethics)

Do some outside research on the difference between Jeremy Bentham's version of utilitarianism and John Stuart Mill's version of utilitarianism. For the first two pages (double-spaced, 12 pt. font) compare and contrast these views. For the second two pages, explain two objections (problem, criticisms) to utilitarianism, and then explain whether Bentham's or Mill's view handles those objections more effectively. (For example, one problem with utilitariansim is that it focuses almost exclusively on sensory pleasure , but it seems that there is more to acting morally than pleasure and pain (e.g., loyalty, promises, etc,), utilitarianism cannot be the correct explanation of morality . Can Bentham refute this criticism? Can Mill?) 

 

Do not use Wikipedia or personal blogs. But there are some really good sites about ethics, including:

 

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy: plato.stanford.edu

Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy: iep.utm.edu

Oxford University's Practical Ethics Blog: blog.practicalethics.ox.ac.uk

Journal of Medical Ethics Blog: blogs.bmj.com

 

Cite any resources you use in the text (including your textbooks). Give full bibliographic information at the end (this does NOT count as part of your four pages). Use Purdue University's OWL website to help you cite chapters from anthology (like Cahn's) and online encyclopedias (entries have individual authors).

 

I will be focusing on clarity, substance, grammer, and use of sources. Do not begin with vacuous phases like, "From the beginning of time..." or "People have their own opinions on ethics..." This wastes space and does not tell me anything about your understanding of ethics. Start strong , for example : "People reason poorly about ethics in at least two ways. First..." or "There might be much less moral disagreeement in the world if people would avoid two pitfalls. First..."
