Abstract: There are, apparently, many differences between the ethical theory of Locke and the next utilitarianism of Bentham, so much so that the explicit appreciations, that the same Bentham expressed about Locke in many occasions, seem surprising.This paper examines some of the most striking differences between the two philosophies, and it does not find in the moral philosophy of Locke elements that are incompatible with utilitarianism widely understood, so that one can see in Locke’s hedonistic empiricism a crucial precedent of utilitarianism.
