自然権哲学の放棄と、Utilitarianismへの移行

”There were two critically important changes in the

philosophy andideology of classical liberalism which

both exemplified and contributed to its decay as a vital,

progressive, and radical force in the Western world.

The first, and most important, occurring in the early

to mid nineteenthcentury, was the abandonment

of the philosophy of natural rights, and its replacement

by technocratic utilitarianism. Instead of liberty grounded

on the imperative morality of each individual’s right to

person and property, that is, instead of liberty being

sought primarily on the basis of right and justice,

utilitarianism preferred liberty as generally the best way

to achievea vaguely defined general welfare

or common good.

There were two graveconsequences of this shift

from natural rights to utilitarianism.”
