Title: A NEW APPROACH TO RATIONING CASES: MEANINGFUL CONSEQUENTIALISM WITH FAIRNESS
Authors: Larson, Evan
Advisors: Singer, Peter

Department: Philosophy
Class Year: 2013
Abstract: My thesis rejects utilitarian rationing, as well as deontological approaches to rationing. Instead, my thesis endorses a new normative principle for allocating scarce resources: meaningful consequentialism with fairness. Meaningful consequentialism with fairness maximizes meaningful lives and takes into account concerns about fairness. I consider rationing cases to defend my view.
