  1. Benjamin Lange (forthcoming). Restricted Prioritarianism or Competing Claims? Utilitas.
    I here settle a recent dispute between two rival theories in distributive ethics: Restricted Prioritarianism and the Competing Claims View . Both views mandate that the distribution of benefits and burdens between individuals should be justifiable to each affected party in a way that depends on the strength of each individual's separately assessed claim to receive a benefit. However, they disagree about what elements constitute the strength of those individuals’ claims. According to restricted prioritarianism, the strength of a claim is (...)

    Douglas W. Portmore (forthcoming). Transitivity, Moral Latitude, and Supererogation. Utilitas.
    On what I take to be the standard account of supererogation, an act is supererogatory if and only if it is morally optional and there is more moral reason to perform it than to perform some permissible alternative. And, on this account, an agent has more moral reason to perform one act than to perform another if and only if she morally ought to prefer how things would be if she were to perform the one to how things would be (...)

    Miles Tucker (forthcoming). Two Kinds of Value Pluralism. Utilitas:1-14.
    I argue that there are two distinct views called ‘value pluralism’ in contemporary axiology, but that these positions have not been properly distinguished. The first kind of pluralism, weak pluralism, is the view philosophers have in mind when they say that there are many things that are valuable. It is also the kind of pluralism that philosophers like Moore, Brentano and Chisholm were interested in. The second kind of pluralism, strong pluralism, is the view philosophers have in mind when they (...)

    James Goodrich (forthcoming). Mereological Dominance and the Logic of Better-Than. Utilitas:1-7.
    It's been argued that better- than is non-transitive – that there are some value bearers for which better- than fails to generate an acyclic ordering. Michael Huemer has offered a powerful objection to this view, which he dubs ‘The Dominance Argument’. In what follows, I consider the extent to which there is a plausible response to be made on behalf of those who hold that better- than is non-transitive. I conclude that there is.
