Utilitarian

U*til`i*ta"ri*an

(?), n. One who holds the doctrine of utilitarianism.
[1913 Webster]

The utilitarians are for merging all the particular virtues into one, and would substitute in their place the greatest usefulness, as the alone principle to which every question respecting the morality of actions should be referred.
Chalmers.
[1913 Webster]

But what is a utilitarian? Simply one who prefers the useful to the useless; and who does not?
Sir W. Hamilton.
