Description

The work analyzes the descriptive content of the concepts of 'what is fair' and 'what is best.' This author presents an account of ethical decision-making from a consequentialist perspective when a fairness constraint is placed on a utilitarian ethical theory. The work begins by analyzing both the perspective and descriptive content and the concepts of 'what is fair' and 'what is best.' The concept of 'fairness' is then analyzed along completely consequentialist lines and a constraint, based on this analysis, is placed on a version of negative cooperative utilitarianism which is developed in detail.
