This episode will be exploring Utilitarianism’s Principles, Criticisms, and Contemporary Perspectives.

Utilitarianism is a moral theory that suggests the rightness or wrongness of an action is determined by its consequences, specifically by the amount of happiness or pleasure it produces. This theory traces its origins to the works of Jeremy Bentham and John Stuart Mill, who developed and popularized utilitarian thought in the 19th century.

Jeremy Bentham, in his book "An Introduction to the Principles of Morals and Legislation," laid out the basic principles of utilitarianism. He argued that the goal of ethics should be to maximize happiness or pleasure and minimize suffering or pain for the greatest number of people. This concept of "the greatest happiness principle" forms the foundation of utilitarianism.
