Consequences, Opportunities, and Generalized Consequentialism and Non-consequentialism
In a recent paper to appear in Journal of Economic Theory [Kotaro Suzumura and Yongsheng Xe, "Characterizations of Consequentialism and Non-consequentialism"], an analytical framework was developed, which allowed us to characterize the concept of consequentialism and non-consequentialism. To simplify matters, however, the treatment in that paper was confined only to the cases where no active interactions exist between consequential considerations and procedural considerations. The present paper represents a generalization of our previous framework, which can now accommodate the situations where consequential considerations and procedural considerations actively interact. The analysis covers both the cases of finite and infinite number of alternatives.
