Philosophy Notes for Week of 4/104/19 Topic: Morality Mill (philosopher) If something is right, it is something one ought to do. Mill’s theory intends to prove that there are things that are ‘right’ (things that we ought to do). Happiness PrincipleAction A is morally right if it is able to produce the greatest possible amount of happiness. Happiness=pleasure with the removal of pain. Mill thought lower class, uneducated people were amoral because he felt these kinds of people were slaves to their desires. ConsequentialismAction A is morally right if it maximizes C (C=pleasure). Zinger (philosopher) Believed that people need a reason behind the things that they do. Believed that morality transcends viewpoints (regardless of your viewpoints, should you do this). <For example: ones viewpoint about killing someone does not have any impact on whether it is right or wrong to kill someone. So even if they felt it was right, the universal viewpoint would apply, and it would still be wrong>. Supererogation An action you take, which you are not under an obligation to do, but it, is morally praiseworthy. <Ex: Giving up your place in line to someone who needs it more.
