Facing Up to Scarcity

The Logic and Limits of Nonconsequentialist Thought

Barbara H. Fried

  • A powerful internal critique of the logic of nonconsequentialism
  • Criticism often focuses on the moral unattractiveness of its premises or conclusions--this novel book engages with nonconsequentialist arguments on their own terms
  • Highlights the structural and logical problems common to all forms of nonconsequentialism
  • Explores the close relationship of nonconsequentialist principles to lay moral intuitions
  • Identifies the consequences when such intuitions guide policy formation
