Political Utilitarianism:A Political Norm of Modern State

Wei Zhihuan;  
Political utilitarianism embodies the realistic orientation of utilitarianism,and has been intensively expounded in Bentham's modern state planning scheme based on British experience. From the perspective of normative power,political utilitarianism has a realistic orientation and is a regulatory rather than constitutive norm compared with the social contract theory. Concerning the substantive base of legitimacy,political utilitarianism has "expanded the degree of equality greatly" and provided substantial justification for the transformation of modern British state. Political utilitarianism provides a norm for modern states that is different from the traditional western social contract theory.
