A reading for my class, “Justice“, discusses the moral choices we are faced with every day, and in rare situations.
Utilitarianism is the second chapter of the book, Justice (above). The case of a ship’s castaway crew is examined, and the question put to the reader – if you were the Judge, what would you decide? Were the crew guilty of murder? Or had they acted justly?
To read Utilitarianism for yourself, click here. It’s in PDF, so you can download it and read a little at a time. I’ll wait. Or you can purchase the entire book, Justice, by clicking here. I also welcome you to post your thoughts below so we can discuss this further!
