Commonsense Consequentialism: Wherein Morality Meets Rationality

Oxford University Press (2011)
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.
