Some claim that this requirement is unreasonably demanding and therefore consequentialism is unacceptable as a moral theory. The paper breaks with dominant trends in discussing this so-called Overdemandingness Objection. Instead of focusing on theoretical responses, it empirically investigates whether there exists a widely shared intuition that consequentialist demands are unreasonable. This discussion takes the form of examining what people think about (...)
