PHI 208 Week 2 Discussion 1

WEEK 2 D1Q:

Using at least one quote from one of the required readings, briefly explain the
the ethical theory of utilitarianism.
Ethical theories have core ideas, principles, and assumptions. For any ethical
theory, there are objections that can be raised against those core ideas,
principles, and assumptions.

Several objections to utilitarianism are discussed in
Chapter 3, Section 3.5 of the textbook, and John Stuart Mill (2017/1863)
discusses 8 objections to Utilitarianism (in Chapter 3 of the textbook, the text can
be found under “Primary Sources” and the objections under the section,
“Objections and Replies”).
Choose one of these objections and briefly explain the core idea in your own
words. Consider whether you think utilitarianism offers an adequate response to the objection.
