A rule-utilitarian moral code

Journal of Value Inquiry 3 (4):258-269 (1969)
Abstract
An ideal rule-Utilitarian theory is presented which incorporates some of the advantages of those based on accepted rules. The theory attempts to maximize welfare for a society of imperfect men. First an ideal moral code is explicated. Second a principle of a practical moral code is explicated which in effect prohibits violating rules of an ideal moral code except when general conformity to an ideal rule would have bad consequences
