"Is Morality Irrational?"
Uppsala University, Humanistisk-samhällsvetenskapliga vetenskapsområdet, Faculty of Arts, Department of Philosophy.

Abstract [en]

In certain situations - which I call lawn-crossers' situations (LD-situations) - if all follow a certain strategy X, all are better of than if they follow strategy -X. Still, for each agent it is better for him and better overall to follow -X. It is claimed, against Jonathan Glover and Derek Parfit, that consequentialism cannot prescribe that all follow X, whereas common-sense morality can - at the price of making people act irrationally.
