    In case an action is pronounced to be right when it is actually wrong, it will be difficult to reverse the decision in the future because people’s action are based on the norms of the society. Therefore, consequentialism is the best option, because it can eventually ensure that every action is morally right. Ethics - Ethics - Normative ethics: Normative ethics seeks to set norms or standards for conduct. The term is commonly used in reference to the discussion of general theories about what one ought to do, a central part of Western ethics since ancient times. Normative ethics continued to occupy the attention of most moral philosophers during the early years of the 20th century, as Moore defended.

      If those with greater means move to countries with more pro-social norms, the odds of human genetic engineering going well improve. While Scandinavian countries may have more pro-social norms than many others, for high skill immigrants who are going to be participating in high sensitivity parts of the economy, elite social norms are more likely. Consequentialism is the class of normative ethical theories holding that the consequences of one's conduct are the ultimate basis for any judgment about the rightness or wrongness of that conduct. Thus, from a consequentialist standpoint, a morally right act (or omission from acting) is one that will produce a good outcome, or consequence.

    Teleological ethics, (teleological from Greek telos, “end”; logos, “science”), theory of morality that derives duty or moral obligation from what is good or desirable as an end to be achieved. Also known as consequentialist ethics, it is opposed to deontological ethics (from the Greek deon, “duty”), which holds that the basic standards for an action’s being morally right are. But the experimenter does not simply “act weird” in public. Rather, the point is to deviate from a specific social norm in a small way, to subtly break some form of social etiquette, and see what happens. To conduct his ethnomethodology, Garfinkel deliberately imposed strange behaviors on unknowing people. Then he observed their responses.

Nonconsequentialist decisions - Volume 17 Issue 1 - Jonathan Baron. According to a simple form of consequentialism, we should base decisions on our judgments about their consequences for achieving our goals. Consequentialism is an ethical theory that judges whether or not something is right by what its consequences are.

For instance, most people would agree that lying is wrong. But if telling a lie would help save a person’s life, consequentialism says it’s the right thing to do. Two examples of consequentialism are utilitarianism and hedonism.

Consequentialism says that right or wrong depend on the consequences of an act, and that the more good consequences are produced, the better the act. Hedonism is the belief that pleasure, or the absence of pain, is the most important principle in determining the morality of a potential course of action.

Pleasure can be things like “sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll,” but it can also include any intrinsically valuable experience like reading a good book. Hedonism is a type [ ]. Many have suggested that utilitarianism, and consequentialism, are fully consistent with common sense or everyday moral intuition (e.g., Sidgwick, ), but this may be more true in interpersonal relations than in thinking about major social decisions.

The common good is defined as “the sum of those conditions of social life which allow social groups and their individual members relatively thorough and ready access to their own fulfillment.” Decision makers must take into consideration the intent as well as the effects of their actions and decisions on the broader society and the common.

Consequentialism Two types of consequentialism (1) Egoistic and particularistic consequentialism One only takes into consideration how the consequences of an act will affect oneself or a given group – e.g.

ones family, fellow citizens/compatriots, class or race. Moral rightness depends on. Social norms are the accepted standards of behavior of social groups. These groups range from friendship and workgroups to nation-states.

behavior which fulfills these norms is called conformity, and most of the time roles and norms are powerful ways of understanding and predicting what people will do.

The agent-centered deontologist can cite Kant's locating the moral quality of acts in the principles or maxims on which the agent acts and not primarily in those acts' effects on others.

Consequentialism, as its name suggests, is simply the view that normative properties depend only on consequences. This historically important and still popular theory embodies the basic intuition that what is best or right is whatever makes the world best in the future, because we cannot change the past, so worrying about the past is no more useful than crying over spilled milk.

This chapter discusses rationality and social norms. Rationality is defined as a relation between action, belief, desire, and evidence. An observed action is rational if it is the best means to realize the agent's desire, given his beliefs about relevant factual by: 1. consequentialism and its critics Download consequentialism and its critics or read online books in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, and Mobi Format.
