Christian Tractatus

(Text as at 12/08/2007 10:17:46)

The strict consequentialist view defines an action or strategy as right if it has the highest probability of maximising the good. That is, if the action is expected to lead to the greatest sum of good for those capable of being influenced by it (including the agent himself).

  1. We have reduced the demands by consequentialism by insisting only that the good is increased rather than maximised.
