Abstract

MARIN, Solange Regina  and  QUINTANA, André Marzulo. Adam Smith e Francis Ysidro Edgeworth: uma crítica do utilitarismo. Nova econ. [online]. 2011, vol.21, n.2, pp. 197-218. ISSN 0103-6351.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-63512011000200002.

We suggest, in this paper, the investigation of Adam Smith and Francis Ysidro Edgeworth's utilitarianism conceptions. Both conceptions were used in order to develop Economics as science. However, they presented the limitations of the economic theory, which boundaries recommended.

Keywords : F. Y. Edgeworth; Adam Smith; moral philosophy; utilitarianism.
