Mill vs Kant

Write an essay comparing and contrasting Mill’s utilitarian ethical theory and Kant’s deontological theory. Start by discussing their basic views concerning intrinsic value, morally right action, and moral duties; be sure to highlight the central points of disagreement and discuss why the disagreement matters for our attempts to consider things from an ethical perspective. Then, think of an example where the two theories would provide contradictory advice for action: tell us what advice each would provide which advice you consider to be better, and why you think that.
