Night School: The Felicific Calculus

Utilitarianism, is the ethical theory of pleasure. It asks several questions of us, and we in turn can ask questions of it: Why should the sentient pleasure of all be the basis of our actions? What are the risks therein? Are all pleasures of the same value? Ahmad Fuad Rahmat walks us through the now oft quoted formulation that we should be striving for the greatest good for the greatest number of people.
