This paper discusses the book, "Welfare and Rational Care" by Stephen Darwall, and its argument that intervening in the welfare of an individual is morally justifiable. The paper critically reviews the book and discusses the major points Darwall makes.

From the Paper:

In "Welfare and Rational Care", Stephen Darwall examines the ethical nature of welfare. Darwall states, "I shall be claiming that a person' good is constituted, not by what that person values, prefers, or wants (or should value), but by what one (perhaps she) should want insofar as one cares about her (Darwall 4)."What this means is that an individual's welfare is essentially determined by what other individuals and society as a whole determine should be in their best interest."
