Abstract

The article deals with the spreading the utilitarian philosophy of British philosoph Jeremy Bentham in Russia. E. Dumon, Bentham’s adherent, was the first man who came to Russia and brought his translation to French Bentham’s main work. He told about utilitarian philosophy Russian aristocrats. The program work of Bentham was translated to Russia. Russian society acquainted with Bentham’s utilitarian theory owing to traveling Russian aristocrats to Britain, and acquaints with his ideas who knew them. Russians understood the utility thesis not as the utility for themselves but as the utility for Russian peoples and Russia. And they followed this interpretation in private and public life which deprived philosophy its selfish contents.
