Another Biography from Blue Pete

John Maynard Keynes (1883 - 1946)

The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money
Blue Pete
The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics

Keynes's General Theory revolutionized the way economists think about economics. He introduced the notion of aggregate demand as the sum of consumption, investment, and government spending. He also showed (or purported to show) that full employment could be maintained only with the help of government spending.

Immanuel Kant (1724 - 1804)

Deontological & Kantian Ethics
Kant and Kantian Ethics
Immanuel Kant Links
New Advent Catholic Encyclopedia

Kant's ethical ideas are a logical outcome of his belief in the fundamental freedom of the individual as stated in his Critique of Practical Reason (1788). This freedom he did not regard as the lawless freedom of anarchy, but rather as the freedom of self-government, the freedom to obey consciously the laws of the universe as revealed by reason. He believed that the welfare of each individual should properly be regarded as an end in itself and that the world was progressing toward an ideal society in which reason would “bind every law giver to make his laws in such a way that they could have sprung from the united will of an entire people, and to regard every subject, in so far as he wishes to be a citizen, on the basis of whether he has conformed to that will.” In his treatise Perpetual Peace (1795) Kant advocated the establishment of a world federation of republican states.

John Stuart Mill(1806 - 1873)

Essay on Liberty
The Subjection of Women
Utilitarian Resources

Mill takes the ground of the Golden Rule, that a man may do anything that he wishes to if he does not therefore injure his fellowmen. The "government" has no right to interfere with him, not even for his own good, as long as he is not injuring other people. ... The primary function of government as seen by Mill and his school was the protection of people from force or fraud, that is defence in war, safety in peace against violence, and security against cheating.(From Blue Pete )

Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832)

Biography The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy
Blue Pete
Benthamism    Utilitarianism From New Advent Catholic Encyclopedia
History of Modern Ethics Stephen Darwall - U Texas Austin
Introduction to the Principles of Morality and Legislation

Bentham's Philosophy:- Jeremy Bentham figured that laws should be socially useful and not merely reflect the status quo; and, that while he believed that men 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." Bentham supposed that the whole of morality could be derived from "enlightened self-interest," and that a person who always acted with a view to his own maximum satisfaction in the long run would always act rightly.
