|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|
