Utilitarianism

Utilitarianism is a normative ethics theory. It postulates that the most desired moral action is that one which maximizes utility. Utilitarianism as a form of consequentialism states that for any action the consequences are the only standards of defining the particular action as being wrong or right. Jeremy Bentham has been credited as the founder of this theory. He defined utility as the the pleasure s of an action that remain after all other associated sufferings have been compensated for. John Stuart Mill is also a big contributor to the theory. He expanded the theory in order to capture both the quantitative and qualitative aspect of pleasure.
