Utilitarianism (Second Edition)
This expanded edition of John Stuart Mill’s Utilitarianism includes the text of his 1868 speech to the British House of Commons defending the use of capital punishment in cases of aggravated murder. The speech is significant both because its topic remains timely and because its arguments illustrate the applicability of the principle of utility to questions of large-scale social policy.

Finest of all ethical moral theories, in my humble opinion of course. The greatest happiness principle is so incredibly beautiful in theory and seems not only plausible but very easy can be applied to human life to work toward a better end for all. Beautiful book if you seek intellectual enlightenment.
