Smart, J. J. C.
(1920– )
Cambridge-born Australian philosopher. Smart emigrated from England to Australia in 1950, and subsequently held appointments at a number of universities, including the Australian National university. In general philosophy, Smart has been a leading scientific realist and materialist, whilst in ethics his staunch defence of utilitarianism has provided landmarks both for defenders and assailants. His books include Philosophy and Scientific Realism (1963), Utilitarianism: For and Against (with Bernard Williams, 1973), and Essays Metaphysical and Moral (1987).
