Briefly: Bentham's

Full Product Description

SCM Brieflys introduce texts commonly studied at A level and Level One undergraduate courses in Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies. A comprehensive introductory chapter sets the text and its author in their wider context.

The texts are analysed and summarized in an accessible and yet thorough style that makes SCM Brieflys an essential study tool for all who want to engage in more depth with some of the key texts of philosophy, theology and related disciplines.

In the Introduction to the Principles of Morals and Legislation (1789), Bentham strove ‘to cut a new road through the wilds of jurisprudence’. Laws should be socially useful and not merely reflect the status quo; and, that while he believed that human beings inevitably pursue pleasure and avoid pain, Bentham thought it to be a ‘sacred truth’ that ‘the greatest happiness of the greatest number is the foundation of morals and legislation’.

Dr David Mills Daniel is an educational consultant who has worked for all the major international exam boards. Prior to his consultancy work, he was Associate Research Fellow in the School of Education at the university of Leeds.

Briefly: Bentham's by David Mills Daniel; David R. Law was published by SCM Press in March 2009 and is our 60108th best seller. The ISBN for Briefly: Bentham's is 9780334041740.
