Fittingness Objections to Consequentialism

In Christian Seidel (ed.), Consequentialism: New Directions, New Problems? Oxford University Press (forthcoming)
Abstract
New work in the foundations of ethics—extending the fitting attitudes analysis of value to yield a broader notion of normative fittingness as a (or perhaps even the) fundamental normative concept—provides us with the resources to clarify and renew the force of traditional character-based objections to consequentialism. According to these revamped fittingness objections, consequentialism is incompatible with plausible claims about which attitudes are truly fitting. If a theory’s implications regarding the fittingness facts are implausible, then this can be taken to cast doubt on the truth of the theory.
