Mill V. Miller, or higher and lower pleasures

In Steven Hales (ed.), Beer & Philosophy. Wiley-Blackwell (2007)
Abstract
I offer an interpretation of John Stuart Mill's theory of higher and lower pleasures in his Utilitarianism. I argue that the quality of pleasure is best understood as the density of pleasure per unit of delivery. Mill is illustrated with numerous beer examples.
