Ethique de la population : l'apport des critères de bien-être dépendant du rang

Abstract : This paper discusses the interest of rank-dependent welfare criteria for population ethics. Population ethics is concerned with the evaluation and the comparison of allocations when population size is variable. It is shown that rank-dependent criteria may be immune to several drawbacks faced by (generalized) utilitarian criteria, which are usually considered in that field.
