Title: Michael Plant
: On The Importance Of Being Necessary
Abstract: This paper motivates and attempts to defends Necessitarianism,  
the person-affecting view in population ethics on which the only persons  
who matter are those who exist whatever we do. I begin by outlining Ralph  
Bader’s recent arguments for the ‘same-number’ person-affecting view. I  
claim that, while his arguments are compelling, they undermine his proposed  
view and instead support Necessitarianism (the ‘same-people’  
person-affecting view). Necessitarianism faces three putative objections:  
(1) it is intransitive, (2) it gets the wrong answer in ‘Non-Identity’  
cases, (3) the view is implausible unless conjoined with the Procreative  
Asymmetry, but the Procreative Asymmetry is hard to justify. I show  
Necessitarianism isn’t intransitive and propose both that, on reflection,  
it gets the right answer in Non-identity cases and that accepting a  
Procreative Symmetry is not implausible.
