M. D. Aeschliman

From The Restitution of Man: C. S. Lewis and the Case Against Scientism (1989):

If the maximization of pleasure and the minimization of pain is the only norm of obligation that needs be attended to, then how one defines and pursues pleasure is his own business, and no general obligation to work for a theoretical "greatest good of the greatest number" can be pressed on anyone.
