Example text

There is certainly a stress on principle, but rule utilitarianism would claim that it too sets great store by the beneficial consequences of applying rules. One answer is that it is rare to find absolute differences between moral theories. Utilitarianism does not simply say that consequences matter, while everyone else denies that. The issue is not their importance but whether they are the only thing that matters. Many would feel that there is something intrinsically wrong with doing something unnatural, and that there is an intrinsic danger in going against the grain of nature.

Sometimes we have to live in ways that are less than desirable through no fault of our own. The deaf must remain deaf, even though they may obtain help from artificial aids. Deficient hearing is a fault, in the sense that we are prevented from living as we should and as we wish without adequate hearing. We cannot function properly, not least because we are cut off from ordinary communication with others. We can fall into danger, as when we do not hear vehicles coming. Whatever we might wish to say about the rights of deaf people, and the evils of discrimination, and however angry we might be about callous disregard of others’ difficulties, the fact remains that they are difficulties.

Someone who is deaf cannot hear. Yet many are so anxious to avoid any adverse judgment on those who suffer some disability or handicap that there is often a reluctance to admit that some people are, in the relevant sense, lacking capabilities and skills that ‘nature’ intended them to have. This claim is replete with assumptions about purpose, but one does not need any religious background to see that humans have evolved naturally so as to have certain abilities, and that those who lack them lack something important.
