    Immanuel Kant Lie

    • 387 Words
    • 2 Pages

    Immanuel Kant defines lies as ¨an intentional untruthful declaration to another person¨ and that it is always unjustified, no matter what the situation is. The problem with this statement is, sometimes lying must be done in order to protect someone. It is for the following that I believe that lying is almost never acceptable. Opponents may say that it is acceptable to lie whenever because they have free will and can do as they wish. Except, most reasons behind people's lies are to benefit themselves themselves. These lies, as Immanuel Kant and Brad Blandon say, destroy human dignity and makes your life more stressful than it has to be. (Rejecting all lies) and (Honestly, Tell the Truth) I believe that lying is only justified to lie when the…

    During the Age of Enlightenment, writers and philosophers in Western Europe published works focusing on individualism and its relation to moral philosophy. Immanuel Kant investigated principles of deontological ethics, which relate to duty and moral obligation. In Kant’s work Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals he focuses specifically on the concept of the good will. In his work the reader finds that is a multi-faceted moral concept, that lays the foundation for all of Kant’s arguments.…

    In Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals, Immanuel Kant discusses laws of nature and freedom and acting with reason versus impulse, with the implication of free will. This explication will discuss the qualifications of reason and being rational, acting in conformity of the law or with the representation of the law, and giving oneself a law with free will. These premises set by Kant lead him to conclude that only rational beings have the ability to act “in accordance with the representation of…

    Immanuel Kant On Morality

    • 2062 Words
    • 9 Pages

    decided to look towards philosophy to find some answers. I found many philosophers helped me answer my questions, but one philosopher in particular gave me some insight on morality. That philosopher’s name is Immanuel Kant. My reasons for picking Kant reflect my personal view of morality and ethics. My first reason is Kant’s idea of morality is not solely tied to religion or god. I wanted to find an answer to explain why I still had moral values, while no longer having religion in my life.…

    Immanuel Kant Duty

    • 1048 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Immanuel Kant’s Classic Work Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals “outlines a rationalist ethical system centered in the notion of the categorical imperative as the fundamental principle of action” (Pojman and Tramel 218). The excerpt we read The Foundation of Ethics focuses on what gives an action moral worth, Kant argues that only if we act out of a sense of duty do we find a true sense of moral worth. I find this claim to be a very interesting one because I have never thought about how…

    Immanuel Kant believed that people should live morally and by doing so, you are acting as a role model, teaching others how to live by that as well. Then the newly educated will teach others how to live by that and so forth and so on. Kant believed that by doing good, good will come to you. For instance, the expression “opportunities will come knocking on your door.” Furthermore, by never traveling outside of a 10-mile radius, from his birthplace, Kant made himself the prime example to his…

    Immanuel Kant Analysis

    • 4 Pages

    Before submitting to and praising Immanuel Kant and the somehow simple yet beautifully complex nature of his ideas, I feel compelled to first address one of the most astounding of my ‘huh’ moments. It rather shocked me to read into the depths of a man whose core beliefs align with the freedom of thought and the unlocking of one’s own understanding of oneself and one’s surrounding world without the interference of the will of others, and yet he still manages to contradict his primary stance. This…
