Non-Consequentialism

Author's Bias: Interpretation: conservative

Justice Ethics
Divine Command Ethics

In addition to Consequentialism, there are other methods to determine if an action is morally right which are called Non-Consequentialist Theories.

In contrast to the consideration of consequences or outcomes of an action, these ethical theories are based on some higher moral standard that is placed upon them.


These theories rely less on human reason and are more intuitively difficult to understand how morality originated from a naturalistic perspective.
