Utilitarianism, hedonism, and desert : essays in moral philosophy by Fred Feldman ( Book )
11 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fred Feldman is an important philosopher who has made a substantial contribution to utilitarian moral philosophy. This collection of ten previously published essays plus a new introductory essay reveals the striking originality and unity of his views. Feldman's version of utilitarianism differs from traditional forms in that it evaluates behavior by appeal to the values of accessible worlds. These worlds, in turn, are evaluated in terms of the amount of pleasure they contain, but the conception of pleasure involved is a novel one and the formulation of hedonism is improved. In Feldman's view, pleasure is not a feeling but a propositional attitude. He also deals with problems of justice that affect standard forms of utilitarianism. The collection is ideally suited for courses on contemporary utilitarian theory
