Kant thought that we should examine the maxims upon which we base our actions, and try to determine whether they were rational. To do this, we need to imagine what would happen if the maxim were applied as a law that everyone has to follow. And because Kant thinks that all humans are rational and capable of arriving at the same conclusions about different maxims, he felt that they would themselves apply the CIs as laws.
Kantian ethics is extremely complicated and I only have a rudimentary understanding of it at the moment! Reason, Duty and Morality. Reblogged this on Emmanuel's Endeavors and commented: Very insightful outlook on morality.
Hey I was wondering what would Kants view be on someone who reveals Government information in the case of Edward Snowden? Would he approve of what Snowden did? So, what happens if you apply the categorical imperative to the Edward Snowden case?
However, Kant was also strongly against using people as a means to an end, which is clearly what the US government was doing. Thanks , its more clear to me now after you explained it. Now one last question. Would Mill also agree with Kant on the decison of snowden leaking the secret information? Because in a way i believe Snowden is acting in a way to maximize the greatest amount of happiness for the greatest amount of people.
So wouldnt Mill agree that Snowdens actions were justifiable in that he was trying to maximize the greatest amount of happiness for the greatest amount of people? Mill was a strong supporter of free speech and was opposed to censorship and paternalism. Yeah it all depends on the outcome of the situation. Anyways , thank you for your help ill definitely be back if i have questions and I will share this with fellow class mates, im sure they will find this interesting and helpfull!
I asked you before what would Kant think in the case of Edward Snowden and I was curious about how Kant would use his practical imperatives to view the case. I enjoyed your view on this. I was wondering if you could think of a certain philosopher out of Plato, Augustine, Leibniz, and Deachart and tell me how one of their views differ. I am having a hard time with this. You mean, compared to Kant and his CI? I really liked your blog! However, I need some help on how to use the Categorical imperative in a certain situation.
Would there be a contradiction of will if I allow my friend to skip me? But surely that IS highly contradictory? If we followed the formula of law could we not say that when universalised, it would mean that everyone would allow their friends to skip the queue, and then the whole idea of a queue would be destroyed?
Same with breaking promises. If we universalised it to say that we could all break promises then the whole premise of a promise would break down. Hmm, I definitely agree with you when it comes to promises. It would just change it a little. Having studied a little more Kant, I feel like I should add that Kant would definitely have thought you have an imperfect duty not to let your friends skip ahead with you. The difference in the example of making promises is that you do have a perfect duty not to break them according to Kant , because the maxim is logically inconsistent.
Hey, its awesome what you are doing! Still a bit confused with the first and second categorical imperatives. How would I associate the decisions that he makes to help the Jewish workers with the first and second categorical imperative.
Essentially, Kant thought that there were two kinds of duties: When we make this maxim a universal law, we make it something everyone should do, all the time.
This sort of logical impossibility leads to a perfect duty, in this case to not lie. This is logically possible. We can imagine a world full of dicks who never help each other. You have to be able to wish for the maxim to be a universal law all the time, not just when it suits you. Does that help at all? Hi, I found this really helpful for my studies as this kind of theory is hard to take in.
I am a little stuck though on the maxim?? How do u define them? I understand the promise breaking and lying kind of but what if it were someone being deceitful in sales or someone playing psychological manipulation? Struggling with the contradiction side of it Thanks x. I hope I can help you out with this. Psychological manipulation could be a little trickier. I may and probably am be way off the mark here but I was thinking about a Kantian and if they instinctively go with the act of duty and act on principles that are non negotiable, regardless of the situation or consequences, then surely a Kantian would never face an ethical dilemma because they would never have a conflict of the mind?
Unless it was something that was a little less obvious and they had to try and work out the maxim? Kantianism is deontological, which means that it involves rules that have to be followed.
The classic example is that a Kantian, if an axe murderer asked her where her kids were hiding, would be unable to lie — because we have a perfect duty not to lie. Thanks again you explain things in an easy to understand way!! This was all a great read. Thanks, and great questions commenters! Do not lie unless you want that to be a general rule? Would you mind explaining what you mean by that? My point is that it is possible to universalise a restricted imperative.
So where is the line drawn? So it looks like that would be okay. Kant would want you to focus more on general imperatives. I think you summarise what Kant would say quite neatly. So, you may agree not to lie as an almost universal principle, but if asked by a child murderer to reveal your children, you have no duty to agree because of the actual universal principle that lying to those who have no right to demand otherwise is fundamental.
By the way, I suspect Jeremy was questioning me, not you. I have no problem with that, if he can justify his oblique criticism. Just to clarify my justification argument.
If a crazed gunman demands that you reveal which way his potential victim has fled, you must not lie to save him because this could not be universalisable as a rule of behaviour, Kant seems to tell us.
I propose that the application of a justification argument can solve the problem. This argument from justification is that you have no duty to respond to any request which is posed without reasonable appeal to duty.
So, in this example, the gunman has no reasonable appeal to duty from you, so you can make an exception to the general rule. In the great majority of situations, you have no defence based on the argument from justification for lying or breaking a promise. So the universal expectation is that truth-telling and promise-keeping is overwhelmingly probable. In a world in which ethics is indeed based on duty, it is this broader conception of duty which, I propose, should inform our actions.

In this case it is fairly obvious that the destructive potential of these people would be greater and consequently their execution entails greater safety, protection and happiness for the society.
Under these circumstances capital punishment stands clearly justified. Finally, the cost factor is also used by abolitionists in supporting their argument. While the legal cost of executions maybe high they are insignificant when compared with delivering justice.

Berkley stated that because the senses were potentially faulty, everyone's sense perceptions and thus everyone's 'truth' was unique and variable. However, most empiricists like Locke believed that some few things could be known with certainty, like shape and color, even if other properties of things could not be known. The empiricists come from the Aristotelian rather than the Platonic tradition of philosophy, and had rigorous standards of truth based upon sensory experience rather than reason alone.
Another way of phrasing the debate between empiricism and rationalism is that it is an essential conflict between the superiority of a posteriori reasoning vs.
A posteriori reasoning depends upon what we know about past events and information to make inferences, in short, observations and experience. A priori reasoning suggests just the opposite, suggesting that everything is there, if only we can learn to think correctly in a deductive manner. Portrayed in Sequential Arts Us. Consequences of these choices only compound his deep-seated insecurities.
Zushi Both Ben and Miko are Japanese-Americans, and their shared ethnic background impacts on their lives in significantly different ways. Miko is proactive and politicised -- she is the assistant organiser of a film festival showcasing Asian-American talent. Ben, meanwhile, is a depressive manager of a local cinema, seemingly content in his life of slow-burning frustration and -- not surprisingly -- covert masturbation. Sexual stereotyping is at the heart of the story.
The title itself is a reference to Ben's feeling of inadequacy in the trousers department underneath the dust jacket, the book cover bears a life-size image of a ruler. At one point, Ben recalls a "stupid joke": I would have been thinking about social norms and categorical imperatives in Kohlberg's system -- or about the social value of self-sacrifice in Gilligan's.
Instead I made a moral choice that reflects moral maturity: Whether consciously or not, I was determined to preserve the dignity and promote the well-being of both my friends. I took myself out of the picture. I knew that I was dealing with sensitive emotional issues and bonds of friendship that could be severed with one wrong word.
Whether or not Julie and John were having problems was none of my business. I did not pry; I did not ask John what his possible role in Julie's behavior was either.
Kohlberg would claim that I had internalized a set of agreed-upon social values and my actions reflected the norms that underwrite morality in our culture. Wild Swans Three Daughters of. Before leaving China, Chang began to seriously question Mao and his methods, and after she left, she realized just how repressive the government was, and that she would not return to China to live. Today, long after Mao's death, China has made it into the 21st century, but it is still a repressive and controlling dictatorship, essentially, and this book helps put the country and its leadership in perspective.
The Chinese are proud people, and they seem to accept power and control as a way of life. It would not be hard to imagine another revolution in the country, as western ideas and attitudes make their way into this emerging giant. It would be interesting to see what this author has to say about that, in the future. In conclusion, Chang's book is a close look into 20th century history and development in China.
It shows how the…… [Read More]. Kantian Ethics Is Premised on. In this light, the individual is given emphasis in the senses that, if one individual's life is compromised, say in order to find a cure for a disease; Kantian ethics would heavily oppose this approach.
Utilitarianism, on the other hand would accept the measure. Both Kant's moral principles and his theory of human nature are designed only to add to our discontent with ourselves. For Kant, the task of philosophy is not to reconcile us to the human condition. Kant thinks that as rational creatures our condition must be on our dissatisfaction, self alienation and endless striving. Philosophy should not try to transcend that condition, but only to help us live with its inevitability and more importantly, to make progress in the painful tasks it sets us.
To some this aim may seem unhealthy, perhaps even dangerous. From a Kantian standpoint, however, any other way of representing our condition appears…… [Read More]. Ethics and Morality Online Sample.

Ethical Analysis of Satyam Scandal. Best Ethical Approaches and Alternatives Frankly, the Satyam case is not one that requires splitting the proverbial hairs sometimes associated with more complex ethical analyses. Unfortunately, the magnitude of the harm caused and the vast numbers of individuals detrimentally affected by Raju's subterfuge absolutely defies any conceivable ethical solution that relies on restitution or compensation to the victims.
In the Satyam case, Raju would not benefit from any of the ethical systems considered. Act utilitarian ethical analysis would condemn Raju's actions simply by virtue of their consequences on the countless victims of his conduct. Rights-based ethical analysis would reach the same conclusion regardless of whether the system relies on objective or conventional ethical rules.

This indicates that society is not safe as the result of the death penalty, so long as life in prison is a real and fully-enforced option for prisoners who commit terrible crimes. There is also the very real issue of innocent people who are murdered by the state.
Of course, some proponents of capital punishment argue that from a utilitarian point-of-view, more guilty people are executed than innocent people. But an equally rational utilitarian point-of-view is that when it is discovered that the state has killed an innocent person, respect for the state and the judicial process as a whole is damaged.
When no one respects the judicial process, crime is likely to increase. Further damage to the social perception of the justice system is incurred by the fact that more non-whites are executed than whites, which suggests that racial biases on the part of juries and lack of access…… [Read More]. Objections to Virtue Ethics My. We condemn someone as immoral who refuses to help a motorist by the side of the road, but not someone who refuses to help a child with his or her extraneous cash -- personal 'gut' instinct in virtue ethics is prioritized morally over the end results, which Singer sees as faulty reasoning.
A third objection to virtue ethics is that it is culturally 'bound' to Western concepts of the self. In many societies, moral character is not based upon individual philosophy, but a sense of collective obligation. Where deontology and consequentialism concern themselves with the right action, virtue ethics is concerned with the good life and what kinds of persons we should be" Athanassoulis, However, philosophers who argue against a principle of moral relativism would state that this is not necessarily a 'bad thing' Midgley Ethical Theory Ethics Given What.
Utilitarianism is most often used by healthcare organizations like insurance companies: As unpalatable as the idea may be, no patient can be tested for every single conceivable illness he or she might contract. There must be some prioritization of high-risk groups. During his or her duties, a nurse may often ration her time, prioritizing where it will do the greatest good for the greatest number of people, based upon the severity of their need.
However, in other instances a nurse may need to deploy the categorical imperative and state that something is clearly wrong or right, regardless of a financial calculus. A nurse must care for all patients to the best of his or her ability and preserve patient autonomy and privacy unless the patient…… [Read More].

Mill's Principle of Utility Mill. Do you consider Utilitarianism to be the way we ought to determine right and wrong? Why or why not? I disagree with Utilitariasnim as moral instrument on the grounds that Utilitarianism may, paradoxically, be harmful in that it focuses on the influence of pleasure or pain to the greatest amount of people.
In that way, it strikes me as being an incomplete measure for ethics, since using a hypothetical situation the majority of people of a specific nation may have pleasure from seeing a minority, who happen to be mentally disabled, annihilated, on the grounds that the majority may have to pay taxes to support this minority. According to Utilitarianism, the majority wins and the minority is annihilated.

He defined the ideals that people share about how people ought to behave a "categorical imperative" - a transcendent concept of "rightness of action. Although some conduct is "right" when it advances personal interests, Countrywide's motive was actual "greed" because greed includes "excess" -- demanding more than one is entitled to. Egoism assumes that there is no "entitlement," others also have interests, and interests can and should compete.
No one is "more deserving" than another. This also is Adam Smith's view of the market: Utilitarian or Retributivist Perspective on Death Row. Utilitarian or Retributivist Death penalty, the capital punishment, was called by Brennan as an "official murder" because of the main fact that it takes life as a form of providing justice to extreme crimes committed by criminals, an "eye for an eye punishment" as others may say.
Justice Brennan, a utilitarian, is against the capital punishment because he believes that death penalty is not reasonable to pay for a crime. This is perhaps because of his personal belief in morality that no human has the right to take away another human's life; that even the worst crime cannot be recompensed by the criminal's life. Brennan even argues that the death of a hundred of people is no worse than the death of one.

Mill held that actions are right in the proportion that they tend to promote that happiness and wrong, as they tend to promote unhappiness.
