Analysis 29 (2):43 - 44 (1968)
|Abstract||The purpose of this note is to discredit a certain argument, which has been presented by h.n. castaneda (analysis, vol. 28), to the effect that utilitarian principles cannot provide necessary conditions of obligatoriness. it is argued that the problem noted by castaneda - as well as certain related problems - can be dissolved if the phrase alternative action is given a more reasonable interpretation than that presupposed by castaneda. finally, a utilitarian principle is formulated which does provide a necessary and sufficient condition of obligatoriness, and which is consistent with the standard system of deontic logic|
