Homework for 10/28

Blog about the one question you would ask John Stuart Mill about utilitarianism if you could. This question might be clarificatory, confrontational, or whatever. Then consider the way that Mill could, should, or would respond. Do this by Sunday at midnight, so you can take some time on Monday and Tuesday to read what your groupmates would ask Mill, and leave some comments.

Read the first chapter (minus the introduction) to Kant’s Groundwork for the Metaphysics of Morals, in the Cahn/Markie anthology. While reading, be thinking about how to articulate the definitions of good will and duty, and the connections between these two concepts and the concept of morality.
