This is a video from the Core Concepts series -- designed to provide students and lifelong learners a brief discussion focused on one main concept from a classic philosophical text and thinker. This Core Concept video focuses on John Stuart Mill's work "Utilitarianism," specifically on chapter four, where Mill discusses the nature of happiness and argues that virtue can -- and ought to -- be an important component in happiness. He also explains his views on how virtue comes to be viewed as intrinsically good to human beings through the agency of habit.
