Read the chapter on utilitarianism in your e-text. Using information about the theory and John Stuart Mill, supplement your reading with at least four other resources. In your essay describe the theory and give a brief bio of Mill, then explain how this theory might be applied to contemporary ethical issues. Your research should be documented by citing at least three credible sources such as the textbook, a newspaper, a biographic article, book, or website. Wikipedia and any similar online reference sites where the content may be authored by anyone are not considered credible sources for scholarly writing.
