In this part of our introduction about consequentialism, we aim to offer some rudimentary notion about the evaluation of the consequences in terms of effective and expected results, the maximization and satisfactory view of the good, the role of partiality and impartiality and the kinds of aggregation, total, average and minimal. We hope, in this work divided into two parts, to have offered a satisfactory introduction to consequentialism, having presented some of the mains versions e discussions about it.
Keywords Consequentialism   probabilism and actualism   maximization and satisfaction   partiality and impartiality   aggregation.
