<<Against System in Ethics>> is an attempt to advance a new qualified approachto consequentialism.Human flourishing and personal committments play an important role here, so that considerations of general benevolence can never be moral<<trumps».The author strengthens the link between the prudential and the moral, the<<can>> and the <<must>>, in order not to make Ethics too demanding. General benevolence,and general well-being, are only at the background in Moral Theory, as the «animating aim>>, but never as a first principie, as clasic utilitarianism required, never within a System in Ethics.
