Thomas Carlyle on Utilitarianism - Dictionary of Arguments

Höffe I 348
Utilitarianism/CarlyleVsBentham/Carlyle/Höffe: [against Bentham's utilitarianism there was the accusation] that utilitarianism was an ethics for pleasure-seekers. The British writer and historian Thomas Carlyle had sharpened it to the objection that utilitarianism was a philosophy for pigs (pig philosophy).
Bentham: According to Bentham's provocative aphorism that, with the same quality of pleasure, an undemanding child's play is as good as poetry, the qualitative differences between the various occasions and types of pleasure expressly do not count. >Utilitarianism/Mill.
