Here’s what you’ll need to do for Thursday’s class:
- Read the first half of Chapter II of Mill’s Utilitarianism, from the beginning of the chapter on 320 up to (but not including) the paragraph beginning “The objectors to utilitarianism cannot always be charged…” on page 326. If you did your homework over the weekend, that means you’ve only got another three pages or so for Thursday.
- Blog: To what extent are we morally responsible for the outcome of our actions? What does your answer to this question tell us about utilitarianism?
