Hodgson, Expectations, and Act-Utilitarian Punishment

(p.66) 4 Hodgson, Expectations, and Act-Utilitarian Punishment
Utilitarianism and Co-operation

Donald H. Regan

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the problem of punishment and includes some arguments that D.H. Hodgson raises in connection with analogous problems involving threats. It focuses on refuting Hodgson and aims to show that it is possible for act-utilitarians to maintain an institution of punishment and not to show that they will necessarily do so.

Keywords:   punishment, arguments, Hodgson, threats, act-utilitarians, institution
