    I have to write a short essay on Bentham's Hedonic Calculus. I have so far written a fair amount however, I'm not sure whether there is anything else I should include. I have talked about:
    -The purpose of the hedonic calculus (how much pain/pleasure is caused by an action)
    - Bentham's view (he believed the most moral acts are the ones that have the most pleasure and least pain)
    Is there anything else I may need to include? I'm not too sure as there isn't much that you can possibly write on Bentham and the Hedonic Calculus without venturing into other topics. Thank you!!

    maybe how it measures the goodness of an action, measuring intensity duration etc...
    It is also quantitative, in comparison to mills qualitative approach
    Also apply it to a certain situation, for example, donating to charity
