Jeremy Bentham

The consequences of our actions are important and we should weigh these up when we consider what we should do.

But some philosophers have taken this idea even further, claiming that outcomes are the only criteria by which the moral worth of an action should be judged.

Jeremy Bentham (1748 – 1832) was the father of Utilitarianism, a moral theory that argues that actions should be judged right or wrong to the extent they increase or decrease human well-being or ‘utility’.
