The 's Lymphom The Treatment Of The Greatest Number Of People

- Cassandra wished to not receive the treatment for her stage 3-4 Hodgkin’s lymphoma, but against her wishes, she received the treatment anyways by force. Since Mill believes in the greatest amount of utility for the greatest number of people, it was not only morally justified for Cassandra, to receive the chemotherapy against her will, but it was the best and only option to achieve the greatest good, per Mill’s utilitarianism. It is sometimes right for adolescents to refuse medical treatment according to utilitarianism because if the greatest good to be achieved is by Mill’s standard would be the absence of pain for the greatest number of people, there may be some case in which an adolescent’...   [tags: Utilitarianism, Pleasure, Jeremy Bentham, Human]

Three Important Varieties Of Rationalist Ethics

- Two important varieties of rationalist ethics are contractualist and utilitarian ethics. The foundations of contractualist ethics can be found in Thomas Hobbes’ 17th century writings. Hobbes’ most essential arguments are built upon his distinct view of human nature. To Hobbes human beings are “machines in motion” (Hutchings) and are driven by the passion for life, and the fear of death. Hobbes suggests that human rationality is a tool to maximize what we desire and minimize what we fear. In arguing his view of ethics, Hobbes’ uses the example of what he calls the “state of nature”....   [tags: Ethics, Utilitarianism, Jeremy Bentham, Hedonism]

An Argument Against The Morality Of The Concept Of A Person Or Person 's Pleasure

- With Utilitarianism as a whole, I view the idea as a concept that has the potential to be good in theory, but only to an extent, and as one that will, without a doubt, always fail in actual practice. In an argument against it, I view that with this mindset, while we try to focus on how to maximize a person or person’s pleasure/happiness/etc. we gloss over far too many other factors that can have a major effect on the morality of the concept. Along with the morality, sometimes when a person may find pleasurable can be detrimental to their physical and emotional health, their mental stability, and their relationships with others....   [tags: Utilitarianism, John Stuart Mill, Jeremy Bentham]
