Abstract:

The paper points out that entirely aside from the psychological nature of the concept, utility suffers from various syntactical and semantical infirmities which are quite enough to produce the confusion felt in dealing with it. It is intended as a preliminary clearing of the ground for an analysis of rational individual decision on the basis of a pleasure-like concept. Author
