Well, what can I say? "Utilitarianism" is a seminal work in ethical philosophy, and rightly so. It is fascinating to see how a philosopher tries to take the "empirical" direction in identifying a general moral principle, even though it is debatable whether he succeeds. Read this with a good summary or comment, or just make sure that you pay close attention to the details.
