Explain the differences between a consequential and non-consequential approach to moral theorizing

Explain the differences between a consequential and non-consequential approach to moral theorizing, using the following scenario as a focus. Adam, a criminal, kills John, the owner of a pawnshop, in the course of a robbery. Assume both the consequentialist and non-consequentialist view the action (murder) as wrong. *Discuss how each approach would arrive at that conclusion.* Be sure to stress the important factors (action taken, parties involved, surrounding circumstances). Explain what is morally significant for each approach in evaluating an action as right or wrong. Finally, give an example of a moral theory that is consequential and another that is non-consequential. Explain how each moral theory would conclude the action as wrong. Requirements: Papers must be 3-4 pages in length, typed, double-spaced, 12pt font, and have 1 inch margins. Any direct quotations must be accompanied by a page number.
