Commonsense Consequentialism: Wherein Morality Meets Rationality

Oxford University Press (2011)
Abstract
This is a book on morality, rationality, and the interconnections between the two. In it, I defend a version of consequentialism that both comports with our commonsense moral intuitions and shares with other consequentialist theories the same compelling teleological conception of practical reasons.
Keywords consequentialism  practical reason  teleology  maximizing rationality  moral rationalism  consequentializing  agent-centered constraints  agent-centered options  supererogation  self-other asymmetry
