    Utilitarianism

       (0 reviews)

    • 06/25/2010 http://www.galilean-library.org/site/uploads/

    A form of consequentialism that judges actions by their utility. Act utilitarianism attempted to measure the pleasure against the pain involved in an act (hence the name); in more recent times, the measure was the anticipated benefit to society or some similar concept. Rule utilitarianism considers instead whether the implementation of an action as a rule would be beneficial to society. Killing someone, for example, would be catastrophic for society if turned into a rule.
