    In Section II, I look to Kant’s precritical ethics, examining his initial discovery of the formal and material principles of morality and his interest in the role feeling plays in the moral life. Of particular interest is Kant’s first introduction of a connection between the feeling of respect for persons and moral duties. One of Kant’s formulations of the categorical imperative—the principle of ends—requires that we treat persons as ends (as things of worth in themselves) but never simply as means (as valuable only as ways of obtaining something else that we value). It is morally OK to treat a person as a means and an end both—indeed, we often do.

      Topic: Human Values – lessons from the lives and teachings of great leaders, reformers and administrators; role of Family society and educational institutions in inculcating values. 7. In your own words, explain Kant’s principle of ends. Do you think that this could be a useful moral principle for you in everyday life?

However, the history of philosophy before Kant contains a number of investigations which must be considered as more than mere beginnings of such a science. Volkelt points to this in his standard work on epistemology, saying that critical treatments of this .

    When I first received my borderline personality disorder diagnosis, my therapist recommended this book. I instantly fell in love with Van Gelder’s writing style and felt less alone for the first time in my life. Now I recommend this book to anyone who just received a diagnosis or simply wants to read a firsthand account of BPD. 2. The book complements the author's much more comprehensive and systematic study Immanuel Kant's Moral Theory (Cambridge, ), a volume that has received the highest critical praise. With its briefer compass and non-technical style this new introduction should help to disseminate the key elements of one of the great modern philosophies to an.

Henry E. Allison, Cambridge University Presspp. Reviewed. Immanuel Kant () is generally considered to be one of the most profound and original philosophers who ever lived. He is equally well known for his metaphysics–the subject of his "Critique of Pure Reason"—and for the moral philosophy set out in his "Groundwork to the Metaphysics of Morals" and "Critique of Practical Reason" (although "Groundwork" is the far easier of the two to.

Moral principles must therefore be based on concepts of reason, as opposed to particularities of culture or personality. The goal of the Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals is to develop a clearer understanding of moral principles, so that people may better avert distractions.

Werkmeister; Journal of the History of Philosophy; Johns Hopkins University Press; Vol Number 3, July Ethics - Ethics - Kant: Interestingly, Kant acknowledged that he had despised the ignorant masses until he read Rousseau and came to appreciate the worth that exists in every human being.

For other reasons too, Kant is part of the tradition deriving from both Spinoza and Rousseau. Like his predecessors, Kant insisted that actions resulting from desires cannot be free. On Kant’s view, God would be a perfectly rational being (i.e. has a “divine will”) and is therefore perfectly moral.

The groundwork for the metaphysics of morals is not God–and there is an entire book of Kant’s that makes great efforts to explain the actual groundwork.

KANT: MORALITY BASED ON REASON ALONE Kant’s Argument: 1) There is a purpose for the existence of things - that is the world is ordered and has ultimate principles.

2) Happiness is for the lesser creatures not gifted with rationality. 3) Because we are rational we are capable of something beyond mere happiness.

Applied correctly, Kant’s moral principles, specifically the categorical imperative, would greatly alter one’s view of life and due to this it may help to not only make the world a better place, but to also bolster individual lives.

Immanuel Kant was born to a simple family of. The categorical imperative (German: kategorischer Imperativ) is the central philosophical concept in the deontological moral philosophy of Immanuel uced in Kant's Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals, it may be defined as a way of evaluating motivations for action.

According to Kant, sentient beings occupy a special place in creation, and morality can be summed up in an. What Kant describes as his “proof of the principle of sufficient reason” is none other than his proof, according to this method, of the causal principle in the Second Analogy of Experience, in the Critique of Pure Reason (cf.

A–1/B–7, A/B, A/B). Now this claim is somewhat surprising. Immanuel Kant vigorously upheld the objective validity of fundamental moral and political principles; and, as I briefly explained in my last essay, he intended his Categorical Imperative to be a formal test that tells us which moral principles qualify as objectively justifiable and which do not.

The Categorical Imperative is essentially a. Immanuel Kant (UK: / k æ n t /, US: / k ɑː n t /; German: [ɪˈmaːnu̯eːl ˈkant, -nu̯ɛl -]; 22 April – 12 February ) was a German philosopher and one of the central Enlightenment thinkers.

Kant's comprehensive and systematic works in epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, and aesthetics have made him one of the most influential figures in the history of Western philosophy.of the "Leibnizian" principle of the formative activity of the mind (as opposed to the much more passive empiricist-oriented model of the mind that Kant had been considering not long before).2 From this time forward, Kant developed his own philosophy and psychol­ .The humanity formulation of Kant’s Categorical Imperative demands that we treat humanity as an end in itself.

Because this principle resonates with currently influential ideals of human rights and dignity, contemporary readers often find it compelling, even if the rest of Kant’s moral philosophy leaves them cold.

Moreover, some prominent specialists in Kant’s ethics recently have turned.
