The "Proof" of Utility in Bentham and Mill

  title={The "Proof" of Utility in Bentham and Mill},
  author={E. W. Hall},
  pages={1 - 18}
The ostensible object of the present paper is to correct an interpretation that, in the author’s estimation, involves a grave historical injustice. Frankly, however, this would never have been undertaken had there not been a supporting motivation—the desire to bring to the attention of contemporary ethicists a basic, yet simple, methodological distinction, a distinction imbedded, so it will be contended, in the writings of Bentham and Mill but almost completely neglected up to the present.
