“He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that.” ........................................................... #JohnStuartMill (20 May 1806 – 8 May 1873), usually cited as J. S. Mill, was a British #philosopher , political #economist , and civil servant. One of the most influential thinkers in the history of #liberalism , he contributed widely to social theory, political theory, and political economy. Dubbed "the most influential English-speaking philosopher of the nineteenth century", Mill's conception of liberty justified the freedom of the individual in opposition to unlimited state and social control. #Utilitarianism (1861). Its goal is to justify the utilitarian principle as the foundation of #morals. This principle says actions are right in proportion as they tend to promote overall human happiness. John Stuart Mill articulated this principle in On Liberty, where he argued that, "The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others."

Few philosophers have had a more profound influence on the course of modern history than #BertnardRussell. "I am in no degree ashamed of having changed my opinions. What physicist who was not active in the 1900 would dream of boasting that his options had not changed?" First published in 1961, this collection of essays is a testiment to a philosopher whom many would consider the most influential thinkers of the twentieth century. As not only a philosopher, but as well as a mathematician, educational innovator, champion of intellectual, social and sexual freedom, and also campaigner for peace and human rights. For while Russell is often in error on positions he assumes, and while he has engaged in stormy and obdurate controversies with a passion of a political rebel... He was, however, a prolific writer that offers profound insights and forward-thinking perspectives on at the time, a changing western society that's progressively shaped, most significantly, by two world wars, the decline of British imperialism, and an evolving moral landscape... While definitively managing to remind men of those traditions of civility and justice that distinguish the liberal spirit in Western civilization from the times of Pericles, to our very own. #westernphilosophy #analyticphilosophy #logicism #utilitarianism #indirectrealism #ismism #epistemology #philosophyofmind #philosophyofscience #linguisticturn #atheism #humanism

Dickens, still more relevant than ever. #Coketown contained several large streets all very like one another, and many small streets more like one another, inhabited by people equally like one another, who all went in and out at the same hours, with the same sound upon the same pavements to do the same work, and to whom every day was the same as yesterday and tomorrow, and every year the counterpart of the last and the next. ~ #charlesdickens #utilitarianism #hardtimes #literature #penguinbooks #classic #victorianengland #future #present #satire

I had a space in my journal so it's time for political philosophers again! "It is better to be a human dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied." ~John Stuart Mill, "Utilitarianism". Pen is a #baoer388 and the ink is more @robertostersignature - Orange Zest, one of my all-time favourite inks. It's got that beautiful shading so characteristic of #robertoster inks. #jsmill #utilitarianism #philosophy

Utilitarianism is one of the most renowned philosophies which is a branch of the umbrella thinking known as "majoritarianism". In a status quo where libertarianism has in certain ways dictated individual rights to be absolute in nature, Utilitarianism is a theory that is overshadowed‼️ Click on the following link to watch Australian Philosopher, Peter Singer's seminal take on Utilitarianism. https://youtu.be/Diuv3XZQXyc #utilitarianism #howsocietyfunctions #teisllc

He knows very well he’s not allowed to sleep in the bed. Yet, we often find him there, with a guilty look on his face. Why do we do things we know we shouldn’t do? Sometimes we lack the will power to abstain from doing something we know we shouldn’t do, but some other times we just decide to do something that we know is wrong because we decide that not doing it would bring about even worse results. Deontologists think that, no matter the consequences, there are some things we should never do, for example killing another person. On the other hand, consequentialists think that consequences are the most relevant factor to take into account when making a moral decision. So, for instance, killing a person can sometimes be the right thing to do when the outcome would be overall net positive. This means that if you could save 1000 people by killing one, according to a consequentialist, you should kill her. On the other hand, a deontologist would say that it is never permissible to kill a person, not even when the alternative is to let a 1000 people die #philosophyiscool #consequentialism #utilitarianism #deontology #immanuelkant #philosophy #sausagedog #naughtydog

Dear diary today I am visiting a gentleman who was born on the 15th of February 1748! #jeremybentham who was during his life a noted philosopher, jurist and social reformer as well as being credited with being the founder of modern #utilitarianism currently resides in the South cloister of the #universitycollegelondon (ucl) main building. Which is a fitting place for one of the Universitys founders. You see Jeremy decided at the age of 21 that he wanted his body to be decected, and by his death in this home at nearby #queenssquare on the 6th June 1832, the 84 year old had requested that he be turned into an autoicon. Three days following his death his friend #georgeFordyce , a chemist and physician, set to dicecting his body in front of a group of his friends. His head and skeleton were retained for his friend #thomassouthwoodsmith to create an autoicon with, and he was also tasked with #mummifying Jeremy's head to sit on the #skeleton. Sadly bentham head when mummified was too macabre to use and a wax head of Jeremy was created to sit on his skeleton, which had been dressed in his clothes and padded out with straw to give the impression of the late man. His head was to be displayed beside it. In 1850 ucl acquired him from Thomas and since then he has watched over the university and attended important board meetings in person, (he is listed present but not voting in the minutes). Hugs head though had to be taken off display as it became the focus of student pranks. In 2017 it was announced that dna was to be taken from the head to #altism research so he still is doing his best to help broaden our knowledge! Now that's a cool chap to get to say hi to...

#Wisdomwednesday John Stuart Mill (1806 - 1873) was an #English #philosopher , #economist , and exponent of #Utilitarianism. Those who know anything about Mill know about his upbringing. His father separated him from other children and from loving relationships and tried to turn him into a perfect #thinking machine. Mill learned #Greek at age 3. Between 8 and 12, he read #Herodotus , #Homer , #Xenophon , #Plato , #Virgil and #Ovid (in #Latin ) while studying #physics , #chemistry , #astronomy and #mathematics.He had the inevitable intellectual and emotional collapse at age 20. He finally pulled himself out when he discovered Wordsworth’s #poetry and came to cherish emotion, beauty, warmth and art. One day he found himself weeping over the death of a character in a #novel. He was delighted.Having been raised in this way and, as an adult, living in #Victorian England, what he hated most was narrowness, conformity, the crushing of individuals under the weight of peer pressure, #government #power or #public #opinion. #Freedom for him was a means, not an end. The end is #moral #excellence. Mill believed that all of us are under a moral obligation to seek the improvement of our moral character. He championed the #egalitarian belief that the best #society allows maximum space for each member to craft his own life, but he had the civilized belief that there are clear distinctions between honor and dishonor, excellence and laziness. Mill was a strong believer in freedom, especially of speech and of thought.

Why should we care if the pesticides we use are 'humane'? What even IS a humane pesticide? Are insect lives so shitty that it's kinder to kill them quickly than let them thrive? I'm excited to have blogged on this topic for Nature Ethics, a project working to raise awareness of wild animal suffering and to increase our understanding of their lives and welfare.

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ ” So essential is this discipline to a real understanding of moral and human subjects, that if opponents of all important truths do not exist, it is indispensable to imagine them, and supply them with the strongest arguments which the most skillful devil’s advocate can conjure up. ”- John Stuart Mill, On Liberty . John Stuart Mill is notorious to have been a successful experiment in raising an excellently informed and perfectly rational being. In Mill’s own description of himself in his own sober, clear, literal-minded, painfully honest account of himself, that his emotions were starved while his mind was violently over-developed. By age five he knew Greek, and algebra and Latin by the age of nine. He was fed on a carefully distilled intellectual diet, prepared by his father, compounded of natural science and the classical literatures. No religion, no metaphysics, little poetry. . His father, James Mill, was the last of the great raisonneurs of the eighteenth century and spent his time among the father of Unitarianism James Bentham. One might expect the apple did not fall far away from the tree, but this was not the case with his son. While James Mill and Bentham had wanted literally nothing, but pleasure obtained by whatever means were the most effect e.g. imagine a perfect pill that would maximize pleasure irrespective of the reality one might be subjected to. That pill would be the pinnacle of human engineering and should be distributed to everyone or put in the water we drink. John Stuart Mill could not be persuaded into this kind of route to happiness. . So John Stuart Mill professed that happiness was the sole end of human existence, but his conception of what contributed to it changed into something very different from that of his mentors, for what he come to value most was neither rationality nor contentment, but diversity, versatility, fullness of life - the unaccountable leap of individual genius, the spontaneity and uniqueness if a man, a group, a civilization.

While we all purposely and unknowingly support a quiet general consensus that #fashion doesn't have to be overly serious and complicated to be incredibly compelling. We delve right into that sense of fashion of "trying not to try" and tackle it as our #CreativxBuzz trivia this month. _ “ #Sprezzatura ”— the “Art of Concealing Art" or #Nonchalance as we all call it, stems from our collective sentiment and disdain for "try-hards" and our society's obvious preference for naturalness. It is important to note that while #BarelyThere , #OffDuty and #ChillAF is having a moment in history as its current fashion obsession through #Streetwear. Studies have shown that it originally dated back to the #Renaissance and can be traced back to #ModernHistory in the early 1950's working class #utilitarianism and throughout the 1990's #grunge movement. It is by far the best example of post-modern irony that we as a #society cultivated proving more so that #fashion is truly cyclical 🤷🏼‍♀️ Photographed by @cerillafrommanila , #NewMonarqCreativx , January 2018

Utilitarianism gets its name from utility; which in this context means sanctity and vivacity. This moral theory states that a world in which pure, inner happiness exists is better than any world that could come into existence. However; our world, our society seeks not intrinsic but instrumental value. This is a pure negative source, because we're running after something that is not valued for its own sake; but for purely what can be done with it. We are hence using happiness as a game of chance.We degrade friendships and relationships because we refer to materialistic things, these things eventually end; however pure inner happiness won't. General happiness is best served by each person focusing primarily on themselves and those around them. Although this is a theory; and cant be proven; we must implement it in our daily lives. As a society; one must understand its vitality and work towards spreading pleasure only for the sake of the betterment of this community. One must value each moment of contentment, and observe to it in pure sanctity; in order to reach a persistent, positively acquainted world. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #utilitarianism #inner #happiness #pleasure #persist #theory #betterment #positivist #goodness #heretohelp #hereforoneanother #humanity #unity #prosper #spreadingpeace #beinghumane #society #postoftheday #follow #like4like

The first of the ethics resources- more coming up! Those who are doing the AQA exam board will be doing Philosophy and Ethics, this is one of the topics you may be covering. Of course requests are welcome for those who need help with topics that do not appear on this page in the next few weeks! Also, quick notice- Philosophy and Ethics notes will probably be delayed as most of them are handwritten in a folder that I will have to get out once I’m back in London so if you’re waiting for the RE resources please be a little patient! #lovephilosophy #ethics #Utilitarianism FAN FACT- you can visit Bentham (well his body) at UCL. I mist say he was a good chap back in his days... 😉 Rufeida xx
