“Multitasking, Consequentialism and Practical Imagination” I argue that the distinction between actions and their consequences cannot be robust enough to underwrite a substantive debate between consequentialism and intentionalism. These appear to be viable options for ethical philosophy because it appears that the primary function of ethics is to settle questions about what to do. But I argue that it is at least equally important for ethics to discover how to be moved to act in an ethical way, and that this can only be understood by investigating the role of imagination in an ethical life.
