About this title:

Synopsis: Refined Consequentialism critically examines the moral vision offered by the late Richard A. McCormick, the premier American Catholic moral theologian of the post-Vatican II era. Taking a philosophical approach to a debate carried on primarily by moral theologians, the author presents a forceful case that McCormick’s brand of proportionalism belongs in the ranks of consequentialist moral theories. In doing so, the author stakes out a clear position on one side of a crucial debate that goes to the heart of the Catholic and Christian moral tradition. This book may serve as a text in both undergraduate and graduate courses that deal with contemporary Catholic (and secular) moral thought. A broader public – one interested in the history of moral theology and in the ethical-theoretical underpinnings of the current debates within the churches on euthanasia, supporting pro-choice politicians, and removal of nutrition and hydration from gravely ill patients – will also find this book of great interest.

From the Back Cover: "Refined Consequentialism: The Moral Theory of Richard A. McCormick makes a significant contribution to the literature focusing on contempo-rary debates within Roman Catholic moral theology over the proper way to determine whether human actions are morally good or not. The intro-ductory chapter is concerned with the meaning of ‘consequentialism’ in contemporary ethical discussions, and the second traces the develop-ment of ‘proportionalism,’ which in reality turns out to be a form of ‘re-fined proportionalism,’ through such Catholic authors as Peter Knauer, Joseph Fuchs, Louis Janssens, and McCormick. The third chapter is a very patient and comprehensive account of McCormick’s own sophisti-cated version of proportionalism, making it clear that McCormick’s pro-portionalism is indeed a ‘refined consequentialism.’ The final two chapters provide, in my opinion, an excellent critique of McCormick’s proportionalism and his consequentialitic defense of intending so-called pre-moral or non-moral evil for the sake of a ‘proportionate’ good." William E. May, Michael J. McGivney Professor of Moral Theology, John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family. Washington, D.C.
