John Stuart Mill was
an English philosopher during the years of 1806 and 1873. Being the
eldest son to a Scottish philosopher, John started his education very
young. He was taught Greek at age 3. By fourteen, John Stuart Mill was
educated in Latin, physics, algebra, English, astronomy, chemistry,
zoology, philosophy, and logic. At the age of twenty, Mill had a mental
breakdown. He questioned whether the creation of a just society, which
he dedicated his work to, would ever make him happy. After answering
“no” to his question, he became suicidal. He found comfort in William
Woodsworth’s poetry and gained a new found joy for others. This led
Mill’s to continue his work to form a just society, but on a different
level than before.
John Stuart Mill is most popular in the
healthcare industry for his ethical philosophies of utilitarianism.
Utilitarianism is the belief that actions are right if they benefit or
are useful to a majority of people. Mill categorized it into two types
of utility, act from utility and rule by utility. According to Morrison
in Ethics in Health Administration, act from utility means, “decisions
made based on its own merit” (page 11). Decisions are made by the
consequences thought out before. Rule by utility according to Morrison
are rules of action that are determined by consequences. These rules are
then used for decisions that produce the greater amount of good than
harm. The rule of utility benefits the majority. Rule of utility is more
used in healthcare than the first type of utility. For example in new
medicine case studies, if there are higher numbers for benefits for a
new medication, then that medication will be released to the public.
