Consequentialism Tuesday, January 10, 2012 3:01 PM When decided what to do, you consider who it effects and what are the consequences. What does it help or hurt? Objections to Consequentialism There isn't time to figure out what the consequences are If you follow this theory, it will lead you to think that many things in your life are unacceptable o It's too stringent - many things that you do for yourself would now seem selfish o It leads to injustice o The end justifies the means o Reparations - various sums and repairs that they think the ought to make, in so far that they or people they are associated with think they have harmed others o Gratitude- if someone saves your life and then you make them a promise but they die so if you don't follow through with the promise he'll never know. All that matters is what the best consequences will be for consequentialism, but others say a promise is a promise!

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
