This paper is an introduction to the contemporary debate on population ethics. As it is shown at the beginning, the paradoxes of population ethics do not pose a problem just for Utilitarianism, but also for everyone who shares a set of very common intuitions. Different proposals for a solution are described, each of which proves ineffective. At the end of the paper two different methods of moral reasoning are distinguished depending on whether accepting counter-intuitive conclusions is allowed or not.
