Objectively true moral judgements (Morality) Supreme Principle of Practical Reality - this will provide a Categorical Imperative for the will. - Categorical - applies in every situation - Imperative- command - the principle must be a prior (independent of experience) - experience is always open to falseness when more experience is found. - experience can only offer probabilistic or qualified certainty -the principle must not stem from interests, inclination, desire, or feeling. - principles based on inclination or interest are at best conditional “If you have interest x, then you do y.” Is there anything has absolute (not conditional) value? Value- Means to an end: tools, money, object, things. Value in their usefulness. -Ends: Persons, rational beings. value lies not inits usefulness. It carries its value in itself. Rational being- self rule, self guide, live autonomously, makes all other values possible. Subjectively- I conceive of myself as a rational being objectively- Everyone else conceives of themselves as rational beings. Categorical Imperative- -always treat humanity (in yourself and in others) as an end (something deserving respect) and not merely as a meant o an end (tool). 1. no suicide 2. no lying promises: no stealing, no assault 3. develop your talents 4. help others (four rules that can help people with not doing wrong) Worries about Kant’s Deontology 1. Kant provides no solution for a situation where duties conflict. 2. Children and animals are not rational beings. -children- potentially rational, animals- not even potentially rational. Stanley Milgram’s experiments invite us to question whether human beings 3. are rational beings in the sense that Kant means it.
