Bentham and the Codifiers



Bentham and the Codifiers Excerpt from Bentham and the CodifiersBentham found, after some vacillation, in Hume s essays an unassailable central principle, the principle of utility as a test of moral precepts and legislation, looking to their tendency to promote the greatest possible happiness of the greatest possible number To this test he adhered, and he applied it with great boldness, and, it may be often said, eccentricity, to all departments of morals, law, and government until his death, in 1832, at the great age of eighty four years.Lord Loughborough declared the principle dangerous, but forty six years after he had first in print maintained it, Bentham noted that Loughborough s remark was shrewd and strictly true, as to the sinister interests of such a functionary, since in a government modelled on these principles, his Lordship could not have been attorney general with a year nor chancellor with a peer age, with a veto upon all justice, with a year, and with five hundred sinecures at his disposal.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books Find at www.forgottenbooks.comThis book is a reproduction of an important historical work Forgotten Books uses state of the art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.
