Download the presentation - 7.90 MB

Economics has traditionally and still takes a consequentialist view of both individual behavior and welfare evaluations. In contrast, philosophers and legal theorists do not necessarily take a consequentialist view, and commonly assume deontological motivations. Do people have deontological motivations? How might we identify them? What are the origins and consequences of deontological or consequentialist motivations?
