The Practical Application of the Theories of Kant and Mill
[ send me this paper ]
Immanuel Kant and John Stuart Mill are philosophers who addressed the issues of morality in terms of how moral traditions are formed. Kant's theory of categorical imperative states that humanity is of ultimate value and should be regarded as an end in itself. Mill's 'principle of utility' or 'the greatest happiness principle' sought for the systematic coherency of ethical philosophy through the consequences of actions as the consideration determining their morality, presupposed by the acquisition of happiness as opposed to the avoidance of pain. This 6 page paper examines the practical application of the two theories. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

John Stuart Mill's Utilitarianism / Equality And Impartiality In Chapter V
[ send me this paper ]
A 5 page paper discussing the ending paragraphs of the work. Though Mills says that happiness is measurable and therefore useful for determining the state of equality between individuals, he does not specify how that measurement should be made. He shows that utilitarianism does not hold that all people are equal, for there clearly are instances in which they are not. That Mills takes such care to explain inequalities indicates that utilitarianism does not in itself either imply or guarantee equality among all, but it is, according to Mills, the basis of morality in that it leads to justice and to right actions.
