Assuming we agree that including ‘everyone’ would be hard to operationalise and ‘shareholders’ is hardly in the spirit of utilitarianism then we have a problem! Perhaps the only way forward is to explicitly and openly agree who counts in a given instance. In this case the focus of our ethical analysis turns to the process of deciding who counts and how their utility is to be taken into account.

Some philosophers, such as Hegel, are extremely demanding, to say nothing of some ‘continental’ or post-modern writers whose dense style can seem obscure.

For example logic, beyond an introductory level, is either extremely subtle (as in philosophical logic) or akin to studying advanced mathematics.
