See the main article for this category, Consequentialism.


Consequentialism or Teleologic ethics or "ends justify the means" is the philosophical view that the moral value of an act is to be judged on its consequences, rather than the act itself. Consequentialism is therefore opposed to deontological ethics. The most common form of consequentialism is utilitarianism.
