Consequentialism is the class of normative ethical theories holding that the consequences of one's conduct are the ultimate basis for any judgment about the rightness or wrongness of that conduct. Thus, from a consequentialist standpoint, a morally right act (or omission from acting) is one that will produce a good outcome, or consequence

It's an intriguing defense of a theory that I had always thought discredited, but Hooker does a good job offering it as an alternative to contractarianism. He moved through metaethics and moral motivation to "normative ethics" to "applied ethics" in a sensible way. It's all very accessible, and the length of the book is much more friendly than, say, Rawls or Parfit. While I do take issue with his arguments against act-consequentialism relying on the demandingness objection, that might just be me—and even then, it was a good read!

HRC-- 'Hooker Rules Consequences' -- is a credit to R.M. Hare, because he thinks through his teacher's arguments, logically. HRC deepens the original insight without distorting it: -- an insight which is or ought to be thematic in all horizons. Give it a try!

This original and important work of contemporary moral philosophy develops a sophisticated version of rule-consequentialism: the view, roughly speaking, that we should act according to the set of rules that, if internalized by most people, would be expected to lead to the best consequences. The argument is rigorous and nuanced, while being accessible and interesting to the general reader. To take one example, Hooker offers a thought-provoking discussion of how much members of affluent western societies are morally required to do to help the needy. Anyone interested in how academic philosophy addresses central issues of how one should live could not do better than this clearly written, powerfully argued, thoughtful book.
