1. What is the debate over utilitarianism all about?
I expect to learn facts, theories, claims that James Rachels will talk about in The Debate Over Utilitarianism and how can it be applied in such situation.
The Debate Over Utilitarianism Chapt. 8 - Wutsamada
I've made only minimal changes to this chapter. I've eliminated two block-quotes by Mill, on the bottom of p. 92 and the top of p. 93 (4/e). The one on p. 93 is especially hard to understand (I don't know which is more surprising: that Mill wrote it, or that Jim quoted it!). I've replaced each quotation with a single sentence that conveys the same thought. (5/e, 90)"The Debate Over Utilitarianism" (ch. 8 in 4/e; ch. 7 in 5/e)
PPPS. This debate reminds me a bit about the debate over utilitarianism. Some anti-utilitarians believe the world would be a happier place if we abandoned utilitarianism. Some NGDP opponents believe NGDP would grow at a more stable rate if central banks targeted something other than NGDP.
