    Consequentialism Two types of consequentialism (1) Egoistic and particularistic consequentialism One only takes into consideration how the consequences of an act will affect oneself or a given group – e.g. ones family, fellow citizens/compatriots, class or race. Moral rightness depends on.   Consequentialism names a type of ethical theory that judges human practices, like actions or rules, based on their consequences.

Abstract. An important issue in epistemology concerns the source of epistemic normativity. Epistemic consequentialism maintains that epistemic norms are genuine norms in virtue of the way in which they are conducive to epistemic value, whatever epistemic value may be.

So, for example, the epistemic consequentialist might say that it is a norm. Consequentialism is a type of normative ethical theory which states that the moral quality of an action is completely determined by its consequences, and nothing else. In this way, consequentialism ethics provide criteria for the moral evaluation of actions, while also recommending rules or decision-making criteria for future actions.

Consequentialism is a focal point of discussion and a driving force behind important developments in moral philosophy. Recently, the debate has shifted in focus and in style. Consequentialism - Christian Seidel - Oxford University Press.

Consequentialism is a good place to start in ethical deliberation. If the consequentialist course of action is not adopted, that implies that somebody is suffering or their life is not going as well as it could go for the sake of some rule, principle or : Julian Savulescu, Dominic Wilkinson.

“Consequentialism” refers to a family of theories in normative ethics characterized by the view that moral rightness of an object of evaluation consists solely in how much good that the object of evaluation generates (Moore, ).At the broadest level, we can categorize different types of consequentialism according to what the appropriate object of evaluation is, what the good consists in.

Consequentialism is the class of normative ethical theories holding that the consequences of one's conduct are the ultimate basis for any judgment about the rightness or wrongness of that conduct.

Thus, from a consequentialist standpoint, a morally right act (or omission from acting) is one that will produce a good outcome, or consequence. Consequentialism is the view that the rightness or wrongness of actions depend solely on their consequences.

It is one of the most influential, and controversial, of all ethical theories. In this book, Julia Driver introduces and critically assesses consequentialism in all its : $ Two examples of consequentialism are utilitarianism and hedonism.

Utilitarianism judges consequences by a “greatest good for the greatest number” standard. Hedonism, on the other hand, says something is “good” if the consequence produces pleasure or avoids pain.

This book articulates and evaluates consequentialist responses to that challenge. Contributors provide a thorough and well-rounded analysis of the benefits and limitations of the consequentialist perspective in addressing environmental issues.

Henry Sidgwick pointed out that the classic version of utilitarianism, the version developed by Bentham and Mill, is underdetermined in a variety of ways. Derek Parfit described Brad Hooker’s book on rule-consequentialism Ideal Code, Real World as the “best statement and defence, so far, of one of the most important moral theories”.

[19] Rule-consequentialism may offer a means to reconcile pure consequentialism with deontological, or rules-based ethics. [20] Two-level consequentialism.

Objective consequentialism (OC) appeals to a basic insight. What actually happens in the world as a result of someone’s action matters morally, and this is separate from features of the agent’s actual psychology.1 G.

Moore gave voice to this insight when he set out the standard in Principia Ethica:Author: Julia Driver. Consequentialist theory is one of the normative ethics theories that try to answer the ethical questions about right or wrong and how we arrive at this : Martin Nwadiugwu."Consequentialism is the view that the rightness or wrongness of actions depend solely on their consequences.

Yes, progressives have sought to jump onto the neoliberal bandwagon and to interject certain subjective harms into the equation. But this is not a feature of neoliberalism or the consequentialism on which it is built. It is a deviation from consequentialism.

If you want to critique this effort to subjectivize consequentialism, then do so.
