Toward a Responsibility-catering Prioritarian Ethical Theory of Risk

Abstract [en]

We argue that responsibility-catering prioritarianism is well positioned to deal with the basic requirements of an ethical theory of risk. We show how responsibility-catering prioritarianism can be operationalized using a prioritarian social welfare function based on hypothetical utili-ties. For this purpose, we propose a hypothetical utility measure based on the utility that would normally be expected given circumstances outside of the control of the individual. Finally, we argue that degrees of control and knowledge of risks and consequences should influence when and how people are considered responsible in social decisions on risk.
