One can approve or disapprove of any action to the extent that it increases happiness(pleasure)or decreases pain. Approve,in Bentham's system

The body of the work had received its completion according to the then present extent of the author’s views, when, in the investigation of some flaws he had discovered, he found himself unexpectedly entangled in an unsuspected corner of the metaphysical maze. A suspension, at first not apprehended to be more than a temporary one, necessarily en-sued: suspension brought on coolness, and coolness, aided by other con-current causes, ripened into disgust.

Bentham's principle of utility regards "good" as that which produces the greatest amount of pleasure, and the minimum amount of pain; and "evil" as that which produces the most pain without the pleasure.

An introduction to a work which takes for its subject the totality of any science, ought to contain all such matters, and such matters only, as belong in common to every particular branch of that science, or at least to more branches of it than one. Compared with its present title, the present work fails in both ways of being conformable to that rule.

As an attempt to create a unified theory of law by cataloging the causes of, needs for, and nature of laws in society this work is quite successful.

The 2010 paperback is basically a photocopied version, which seems like it was done on a melting photocopier! Many of the pages are barely readable, and there are photocopied notes someone took, which aren't even helpful... I highly recommend purchasing the 1988 version instead! I don't know why such a version is being sold by Amazon.

Always fun to go back to the classics and see how economic thought has matured or not?? You be the judge of the neoclassics.
