Abstract
In his article about utilitarianism and Mo‐tzu's thought, Dennis Ahem has argued that we should distinguish between two types of utilitarianism. The first he calls “strong utilitarianism”. Ahern says that the distinctive characteristic of this type of utilitarianism is the notion that the final criterion for an action, value, etc. is its utility .1
