Deontology is an ethical theory that cares only about the motivations of an action. It deals with the motives a person has and whether those intentions are moral or immoral.

    legacy is survived by the accounts of his disciples. Socrates’ students, however, did more than simply preserve the memory of their teacher. Socrates’ students such as Plato, Xenophon and Aristophanes furthered Socrates’ inchoate introduction to philosophy, transforming it into a legitimate field of study and producing the worlds’ first true philosophical works.

    My personal reaction to this film left me feeling both intimidated and anxious. The insight on what law school will be like is no easy reality to face. The films main message clearly establishes that law school involves an immense amount of studying, a finite social life, and lastly a stressful lifestyle. The film portrays this message by revealing the true difficulties and challenges that come about in law school through the perspective of the main character, James Hart, who is a student…

    Along with Socrates, Plato continued building philosophy around the conception of the divine attributes of the universe, termed ideal forms by Socrates.

The search for reality requires intense contemplation and intuition, years of study, and mastery on the nature of the universe, the shape of the world, the soul and its immortality, human thought, psychology, and politics, but they lacked the empirical focus that…

    Kantian ethics and the ethics of Kant are fundamentally separate ideas. The ethical framework Kant laid out in the Groundwork of the Metaphysics of morals can be interpreted in a way which Kant himself would not adopt. This framework is based upon his three categorical imperatives, which Kant suggests our synonymous with each other. Later however, I will show how through a different application of Kantian ethics, one can radically diverge from his viewpoint, to disagree with Kant’s argument that…
